Chicken Parmesan Casserole


Before you start, make sure you have all the ingredients ready:

  • 2 lbs chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh basil or parsley (optional, for garnish)


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to ensure it's hot and ready when your casserole goes in.

Step 2: Prepare the Chicken

Cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Season them with salt and pepper to your taste.

Step 3: Make the Breadcrumb Coating

In a separate bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and grated parmesan cheese. This will add a deliciously crispy layer to your chicken.

Step 4: Coat the Chicken

Dip each piece of seasoned chicken into the breadcrumb mixture, making sure they are evenly coated.

Step 5: Assemble the Casserole

In a casserole dish, spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the bottom. Place the breaded chicken pieces on top of the sauce.

Step 6: Add More Sauce

Pour the remaining marinara sauce over the chicken pieces, ensuring they are fully covered.

Step 7: Top with Cheese

Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese generously over the top of the saucy chicken.


Step 1: Initial Baking

Cover the casserole dish with foil to help the chicken cook through without drying out. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Step 2: Final Baking

Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.


Step 1: Rest Before Serving

Allow the casserole to rest for about 5 minutes before serving. This helps the sauce settle and makes it easier to serve.

Step 2: Garnish

If desired, garnish with fresh basil or parsley to add a touch of color and freshness.

Step 3: Complete the Meal

Serve the Chicken Parmesan Casserole with a side of pasta or a green salad for a complete and satisfying meal.
