Chicken Parmesan Bake

Pin It!

Happy Thursday everybody! I can't believe it's already going to be Friday tomorrow! I'm so very, very excited because my daughter's teacher from last year asked me and one of the other moms to come help her out in her class tomorrow! She obviously missed our presence :). I have missed hers, too, actually, and am really looking forward to getting to spend a little time in a familiar classroom! Starting next week I will be working in my daughter's new classroom and getting to know her new teacher better, which should be fun, too!

This week has been really awesome because my daughter and I have been walking to school in the mornings! The weather has been so nice and luckily, for us, the route we take goes right through a park. It only takes us 10 minutes to get there and my daughter absolutely loves it! It definitely gets my morning off to a good start :).

This recipe i'm posting today is one that is perfect for a weeknight dinner and kids love it because it's simple and there's cheese involved! Gotta love cheesy recipes.

Chicken Parmesan Bake Recipe:   {Print Recipe}


2 Large (or 3 medium) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
16 ounces spaghetti noodles (you could definitely use a different noodle!)
24 ounces spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup italian style bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
4 tablespoons butter *softened*
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper and italian seasoning. Place in small baking dish and bake for approximately 40-50 minutes (or until juices run clear!)

Cook your pasta al dente (according to your package's directions), drain and mix in spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper.

Lightly grease a 9"x13" baking dish and pour spaghetti mixture in.

Slice chicken (against the grain) into 1/2" thick slices and place, side by side, over the top of the spaghetti.

Combine parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese and sprinkle over chicken. Combine butter, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper and sprinkle over the cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and breadcrumbs are brown and toasty.

Sprinkle fresh parsley over the top and serve!
