Chicken Parmesan Bread Bowl

This warm, cheesy masterpiece proves bread bowls aren't just for soup anymore.


  • 1 cup rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1 medium sourdough bread
  • 4 tablespoons Parmesan, grated
  • 3/4 cup marinara
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Parsley to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut a shallow hole in the top of the bread. Remove the top piece, then place it in a food processor to turn into fine crumbs. Mix with some finely chopped parsley and Parmesan. Set aside.
  2. Sprinkle some mozzarella on the inside of the bread bowl. Then add the shredded chicken, sauce, more mozzarella, and a few tablespoons of the breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the surface is golden brown.
