Health on the Stealth: “Snowed In” Chicken Parmesan Sliders

I’m from Alabama.

Alabama doesn’t get snow that often, and when we do, we have to shut down all the non-essential places or we will have a “Snow-pocalypse” situation like we did in 2014. (I have a story about that, but that is another blog for another day.)

Anyway, we were scheduled to have snow on December 8, 2017. The weather guys were not really sure how much snow we would get – their forecasts called for anywhere from 1/2 inch all the way up to 3 inches in elevated areas.


…we ended up with 5 inches total. For most places in the US who are used to multiple feet of snow, this is a drop in the bucket. For us in the southeastern part of the country, that is shutdown time.

Luckily, I don’t listen to the meteorologists and I went to the store like we would be stuck at home for a couple of days. One of the meals that I got the ingredients for was Chicken Parmesan Sliders. If you don’t know what a slider is, it is a smaller version of a regular sandwich. They come mostly as hamburgers, but they can be made as Philly cheesesteaks, Chicken Parmesan sandwiches, buffalo chicken sandwiches, Cuban sandwiches, ham and cheddar, and many more. We love eating sliders from time to time, and the cold weather outside made these warm sliders the perfect meal for being snowed in.

So how did I slide in a bit of “Health on the Stealth” with this dish?

  • I used organic chicken.
  • I used whole wheat Panko and flaxseed for a bit of crunch.
  • I added a shallot and used a chunky marinara sauce.

Yes, I served this with French fries but it turned out so delicious.

On to the recipe….
