Chicken Parmesan Casserole Recipe

Chicken Parmesan Casserole Recipe

Yields: Makes: one 8x8 casserole dish
An easy and delicious way to use up leftover chicken.
4 cups of shredded, cooked chicken
1 jar (28 ounces) of marinara sauce
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese*
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup panko or whole wheat bread crumbs (Here is how to make your own)
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
fresh, chopped herbs (parsley, basil, oregano, etc)
salt and pepper

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Grease an 8x8 casserole dish with cooking spray.
3) Layer the chicken in the bottom. Dump in the marinara sauce and mix with the chicken. Next, top with cheeses until all the chicken is covered.
4) In a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, olive oil, fresh herbs and a dash of salt and pepper together.
5) Sprinkle the seasoned breadcrumbs on top.
6) Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden on top and bubbling on the sides.
Freezer Meal Directions:
Put casserole together and freeze it before baking. When you're ready to cook it, let it thaw in the fridge over night. If it's still slightly frozen in the middle, you'll just have to cook it longer than the recipe calls for or defrost a bit in the microwave before baking. Cover it with foil if the top gets too brown in the oven.

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
