Baked Chicken Parmesan Casserole Recipe
The easiest way to make chicken parmesan - layer it in a casserole dish and sprinkle croutons on the top!
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves crushed
- dash of hot red pepper flakes to taste
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups marinara sauce
- ¼ cup fresh chopped basil
- 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 5 ounces garlic croutons 1 bag
Pour the olive oil in the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan and spread around so that it covers the entire surface. Add crushed garlic and red pepper flakes and spread it around so it is easily distributed.
Place whole chicken breasts in the pan. Pour marinara sauce on top of the chicken. Sprinkle basil on top of sauce. Sprinkle half of the cheeses on top of the basil. Dump all the croutons on top of that. Finish it off with the other half of the cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40- 55 minutes (it depends on how large your chicken breasts are- mine cooked for about 50 minutes).
Let stand for about 10 minutes after you pull it out of the oven and serve!
