Another simple dinner recipe coming your way! This was our new recipe for May, and I’m sure we’ll be making it again. This is a great recipe to make as a freezer meal for busier times in life (ahem…like now). But we enjoyed it fresh out of the oven!

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

(Recipe source)

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. cooked chicken
  • 1 jar (28 oz.) marinara sauce
  • .5 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1.5 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt, pepper, oregano, basil, Italian seasoning (or your preferences!)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Dice the chicken and mix with the marinara sauce.
  4. Top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.IMG_0754
  5. Mix the breadcrumbs and seasonings together before adding to the top.IMG_0755
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.IMG_0757.JPG

OR to make it a freezer meal, simply freeze before step 6 (baking it). Then, when you’re ready to eat it, let it thaw for a day in the fridge before baking.

We served ours with French bread and a simple salad. For leftovers, we are planning to make these into delicious (but messy) sandwiches on some thick slices of bread (possibly open-face style with some extra cheese on top). You could also make up some noodles or pasta to serve this over. Lots of options, and they’re all good! IMG_0758.JPG

This is an easy meal to make if you’re in the mood for Italian but want a shortcut. Let me know if you try it!
