Summer has arrived here in TN, and she has come back with a vengeance. It has been HOT. The high temperatures (in the 90s!) are a huge factor when making plans for the day- and when planning dinner. This time of year, we typically gravitate towards salads and quick and easy dishes that can be prepared on the grille.
I am a huge fan of all things cooked over charcoal, but I always find myself longing for my favorite Italian pasta dishes. It has just been too hot for pasta, so I had to come up with a solution. I decided to swap out the noodles for a great bun, and lighten up the flavors to fit these blistering summer days!
Today, the recipe I’m sharing with you, is my Grilled Chicken Parmesan Sandwich! I know what you might be thinking… Chicken Parm? But that’s so heavy! Typically, yes, it totally is! I use a simple homemade sauce, lighten it up with lemon and fresh herbs (because, hello summer!) and put it between two totally delicious Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns.
Every great sandwich requires a great base. These 100% whole wheat hamburger buns are a great choice for every occasion. There is no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors in these delicious buns and with a brand as reputable as Pepperidge Farm® it’s an easy decision to make!

This recipe would be delicious with a great burger recipe as well, but we had a great sale on chicken this week and decided to go with this! I thought my light and simple Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe would pair deliciously, so be sure to check that out!
Okay, let’s get down to it- the recipe!
