We think this combination of ingredients and flavors is pretty perfect, but there are  many other ways to make these sandwiches! Here’s a few ideas to switch things up a little!

  • Pork or turkey cutlets instead of chicken
  • Marinated, grilled chicken instead of breaded cutlets
  • Different rolls like sub rolls, sourdough, kaiser or poppy seed
  • Different cheese like provolone or gorgonzola or melted mozzarella
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Pickled vegetables (giardiniere)
  • Pepperoncini or banana peppers for spiciness

Can You Make These Chicken Sandwiches In Advance?

You can make the chicken cutlets ahead of time and them warm them up on a sheet pan in the oven right before assembling your sandwiches. Everything else for these tasty Italian sandwiches are already ready to go!

When the fresh mozzarella hits the warm chicken cutlets, it’ll start to melt just a little but not all the way. It’s literally the most perfect sandwich recipe out there. I haven’t found anyone yet that doesn’t love them!

One thing that I’ve learned when serving these Italian Chicken Ciabatta Sandwiches is to go ahead and assemble them before serving. Because there’s always that person that says they don’t want this ingredient or that ingredient and they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Once they bite into this sandwich they won’t believe how delicious the combination of all the textures and flavors are!
