4 cups fully-cooked chicken, cubed
24 oz of marinara sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup panko bread crumbs
3 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP Italian Seasoning
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare an 8×8 casserole dish with cooking spray.
3. Layer the chicken in the bottom of the casserole dish.
8. Bake casserole uncovered for about 25 minutes or until golden on top and bubbling on the sides.
Looks great right? If you love freezer meals, this is a perfect option as well, simply follow the directions and instead of baking the dish, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. The day before you want to eat this casserole, take the dish out of the freezer and let the dish thaw in the refrigerator and prepare as directed.
What are your go to casserole dishes for busy seasons in your life?
