Chicken Parmesan Pull Apart Bread

Chicken Parmesan Pull Apart Bread

Chicken Parmesan Pull Apart Bread is a fun appetizer or party food made with frozen chicken tenders and refrigerated pizza dough. It’s quick, delicious and disappears fast!


Y’all know how much I love to make appetizers. Especially cheesy pull apart, cheesy bread appetizers.

So, when The Daily Meal contacted me about making a fun football party food I was so on board.

I absolutely love a good excuse to make an appetizer.

This is an easy to make recipe using Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips. It has all the flavors of Chicken Parmesan – but it’s a pull apart bread.

How fun is that?? 


I absolutely adore pull apart breads; they’re so much fun to make, and they can accommodate almost any dietary restrictions. For a lower calorie version use the grilled chicken strips instead of breaded, and skim milk mozzarella instead of whole milk. 

If you have a gluten intolerance, you can certainly sub polenta for the pizza dough or make a gluten free pizza dough.

This is a yummy classic Italian grab ‘n go kinda stuff.

You know you need an Italian fix, but you’ve got stuff to do.

They’re the perfect combination of a fun appetizer and hearty, filling game time food and an easy family movie time snack.

I love recipes like this; taking one recipe and using it to create something completely different.

It’s a good way to pull inspiration for new recipes if you find yourself completely out of ideas.
