Giada's Weeknight Chicken Parm Sandwich
- Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil along with the 4 slices of bread. Cook the bread until golden brown and crispy on the first side, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the bread and continue to cook a minute longer. Remove the toasted bread to 4 dinner plates. Wipe out the pan with a dry towel.
- Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan. Season the chicken cutlets evenly with the salt and oregano. Add the chicken to the hot pan and cook for 2 minutes on the first side or until golden brown. Flip the chicken and cook 1 minute longer. Reduce the heat to medium low and add the sauce to the pan. Flip the chicken to coat it in the sauce and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Fold each slice of provolone in half and place on top of each cutlet. Cover and allow to sit for 1 minute to melt the cheese.
- To assemble, spoon some sauce on each slice of bread. Divide the greens evenly on the sauce. Top each sandwich with a cutlet. Top with any remaining sauce if desired.
