I just made this a few nights back for a little dinner party of four. It seemed to be a huge hit, and we ate it all up!
4-6 large chicken breasts (how many ever will cover the size of your pan)
2 tablespoons olive oil
red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves – crushed or you could use dried minced garlic. whatever you have, will work
1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 5 oz package of garlic croutons
2 cups marinara sauce
Preheat your oven to 350
in a large baking pan, cover the bottom with your olive oil and a very healthy sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes. I put a lot, and it added a nice kick.
layer your chicken breast in one layer on top of that.
Next, cover the chicken with your marinara sauce – I just used about 3/4th’s of the jar.
Then cover the marinara with a healthy sprinkling of your italian seasoning. Fresh Basil would be delicious too – but I didn’t feel like getting any.
Cover that with half of your mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
bake for 35-45 minutes. It depends on how thick your chicken breasts are.
I served it with a ceasar salad and a delicious meal was had by all!
