Parmesan Chicken Stuffed Garlic Bread Recipe

I think my love affair with anything with garlic in it is unspoken, and my picky five year old eating habits has me loving anything that’s chicken and fried so when I came across the idea of a Parmesan stuffed garlic bread…Your girl was like mmm yasss!

In true Nerala style, I wanted to do everything from scratch but there’s a much simpler way… Yes, just buy pre-made garlic bread and make your chicken, then stuff that shit #LifeHack

Garlic bread pairs nicely with anything parmesan, those Italians really knew what they were doing. This recipe was super easy to make and will be a really fun party snack.

I put my own spin on the garlic bread by adding the cheese and garlic and other seasonings into the dough, this is optional. Personally, I love highly seasoned, cheesy food but you’re free to make the dough without the additional seasonings and then place the garlic butter after baking.

Let’s dive into the garlicky, buttery, crunchiness of this bread.
