*recipe found at Foodwishes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- hot red pepper flakes, to taste
- 5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (Pound thin or cut into small chunks)
- 2 cups marinara sauce
- 1/4 cup chopped basil
- 8 oz mozzarella, shredded
- 4 oz Parmesan, grated
- 1 (5-oz) package garlic croutons
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat bottom of 9×13 casserole dish with olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Layer in this order: chicken breasts (or pieces), marinara sauce, chopped basil, 4 oz mozzarella, 2 oz parmesan, croutons, remaining 4 oz mozzarella, and 2 oz parmesan. Bake for 35 minutes uncovered.
I used 5 HUGE whole chicken breasts and they were under cooked after 35 minutes. I suggest cut breasts in half, into pieces, or pound thin.
