1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2-1/3 cups canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree, from a 28-ounce can
pinch dried red pepper flakes, optional
cooking oil, for frying
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 1-1/3 pounds in all
2 eggs, beaten to mix
4 small (about 6") hero rolls, or other sandwich rolls




In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper.

In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, red-pepper flakes, and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, heat 1/4 to 1/2 inch of cooking oil over moderate heat until very hot. Dip each chicken breast into the eggs and then into the bread crumbs, coating well. Fry in the hot oil, turning once, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 15 minutes in all. Drain on paper towels.

While the chicken is cooking, heat the broiler. Brush the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over the cut-side of the rolls and toast under the broiler until golden, about 2 minutes. Spoon half the tomato sauce onto the bottom half of the rolls. Top with the chicken, the remaining sauce, and the other half of the rolls.


Wine Recommendation: A simple wine befits a simple dish. Select a fresh, grapey Chianti to drink with these homey Italian-American heroes.

Crisp fried shrimp are stuffed into a hollowed-out baguette that’s been buttered, toasted, and spread with a zesty sauce. Use more Tabasco in the sauce to suit your taste, or pass the bottle at the table.
