For Bechamel Sauce

3. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in four and cook until a light golden color about 7 minutes. Increase the heat to medium and slowly whisk in milk until thickened. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to medium low and continue simmering until the flour softened, 10-20 minutes. Season with salt.

4. Slice the rolls in half and arrange the bread so each piece lays flat and most of the bottom of the dish is covered. Cover generously with tomato sauce and then bechamel. Add some parmesan and the chicken breast pieces on top.  Next, add another layer of tomato sauce, bechamel and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan cheese and top with the fresh herbs.

5. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until it is golden brown on top. Remove from oven and serve warm.
