Chicken Parmesan Bake

This is a super simple dish that literally comes together in minutes.  I always kind of enjoy the layering process.  Something kinda fun about it.  (I know, I am lame and need to get a life!) Anyway,  it is super tasty and I will totally be making it again.  It does not really taste like Chicken Parmesan, but the flavors are fantastic together and we all loved the croutons on this.  The sauce gets diluted some from the chicken juices, but still had great flavor.  Make this dish! 

adapted slightly from:


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • hot red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast (I halved mine in thickness, so I only used 3 large)
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1/4-1/3 cup chopped basil
  • 8 oz mozzarella, shredded
  • 4 oz Parmesan, grated
  • 1 (5-oz) package garlic croutons

Preheat oven to 350.  Drizzle olive oil in 9x13 baking dish.  Add garlic and red pepper flakes.  Put in raw chicken.  Pour sauce over chicken.  Sprinkle chopped basil over sauce.  Sprinkle half the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over sauce.  Sprinkle croutons over cheese.  Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the croutons.   Bake for 35-40 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown and chicken is cooked through.  Serve with pasta.
