Ingredients
Baked chicken
  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
Chicken Parmesan Casserole
  • 1 jar vodka sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Panko topping
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • 2 tbsp basil fresh chopped
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
Instructions
  1. First, bake chicken in the oven. Preheat oven to 400. Drizzle olive oil on the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place chicken in an oven safe pan and cook for 10 minutes. Flip chicken and cook an additional 15 minute, or until juices run clear when the chicken is cut. For fool-proof cooking to the safe 165 degrees, use a thermometer to make sure chicken is cooked through.

  2. Turn oven down to 350 degrees. Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces and add the chicken to an 8×8 glass cooking dish. Add vodka sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Toss all ingredients together and set aside.

  3. Make the crunchy panko topping. Mix panko crumbs, basil and olive oil in a small bowl. Top the chicken casserole with the panko crumb mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

  4. Bake the chicken parmesan casserole for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Set the glass dish on a baking sheet so it’s easy to safely take in and out of the oven. Set the broiler to high and broil for 2-4 minutes. The baked chicken parmesan with vodka sauce is done when the panko topping is golden brown.

  5. Serve over pasta or potatoes (optional)
