This is not only an appetizer, it could definitely be dinner. I took leftover chicken parmesan, chopped the hell out of it, added more tomato sauce and poured it into a hollowed out French bread loaf.
THEN, I cubed the bread that was scooped out and made big fat croutons that were worthy of being vehicles for the aforementioned dip. It was meant to happen; no one would finish off all of that chicken parm. I had to turn it into something else.
It’s literally combining two favorites = Cheesy Italian food with the bread that everybody eats with cheesy Italian food.
