Another really easy and fast meal! And yes that is a piece of Texas Toast served beside the pasta dish... I tried to look up a more homemade version ok!! ... but I just love that Texas Toast! The chicken and marinara concoction went really well with the egg noodles as the pasta. Happy to say we have another great dish to add to our menu to pick from! If I was watching my caloric intake last night... I probably wouldn't of served myself so many of those egg noodles... maybe even no egg noodles... and just the chicken and sauce.. with the Texas Toast.. I'm sorry but the texas toast is worth the 150 calories! I'll probably try this with whole wheat pasta next time.. oooh or try it as a panini! That would be fun!
Recipe Adapted from: Iowagirleats
Baked Chicken Parmesan
6 chicken tenders (or 2-3 chicken breasts)
salt & pepper
1 jar marinara sauce
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil (I probably used 1 tsp)
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
2 servings cooked pasta( I used 1/2 lb of egg noodles)
I served ours with a side of Texas Toast!
1. Pour marinara sauce in an oven-safe baking dish.
2. Add the parmesan cheese and basil to the sauce, then stir to combine.
3. Lightly season chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder then nestle it into the sauce mixture, covering it completely with sauce.
4. Top with mozzarella cheese and cover loosely with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve on top of cooked pasta.
