Making Vegan Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches

First of all, you’ll need a batch of my favorite vegan chicken parmesan patties. In fact, they’re so good, I recommend making a double batch and freezing some so you’ll have them ready at moment’s notice.

Here’s the list of ingredients:

  • one batch of Vegan Chicken Parmesan Patties
  • marinara sauce
  • vegan mozzarella
  • 6 dairy-free buns

To Toast or Not to Toast

The toughest decision with these sandwiches is whether or not to toast the buns. We usually toast our buns, but it’s perfectly fine with untested buns too.

Some other ideas for this recipe:

  • Add a dollop of vegan mayo to the bun
  • Sprinkle some fresh or dried basil
  • Serve it with additional marinara sauce for dipping
  • Add a slice of avocado on top of the melted cheese

The list goes on! What are your favorite vegan sandwich toppings?

  • Follow the instructions to make Vegan Chicken Parmesan, including making the patties, breading them, and baking them.
