Chicken Parmesan Casserole

September 22, 2016

Simple ingredients, minimal work, big flavor results – that’s my kind of recipe.

Chicken parmesan is such a delicious dish, but it also requires a bit of work. Looking to speed up the process, I decided to use the same flavorful ingredients and simply layer them in a casserole – it all goes to the same place, right? See the video above for a quick tutorial.


Layers of juicy chicken, bright spinach, robust marinara, and sharp parmesan are topped with crispy bread crumbs to create a delicious, healthy, and easy dish that is sure to please even your pickiest eaters.
