Chicken Parmesan Casserole

2016-06-20 17.15.01.jpg Sometimes I just don’t know what to make for supper and I end up searching my deep freezer for meat and my pantry for ingredients. I also head over to Pinterest for ideas. Today I found this Chicken Parmesan Casserole over at Thriving Home.  As usual I changed a few things to add more flavors that my family enjoys.

This casserole is another easy meal that packs a lot of flavor. The recipe calls for cooked chicken, but you could use uncooked chicken and just bake it longer.  Today I cooked the chicken first with some garlic and salt and pepper for some added flavor.

Just like chicken parmesan we ate this over spaghetti noodles. I made the noodles up while the casserole was baking.

The entire family enjoyed it. My 3-year-old went to town on it, which is a huge win for me! It tastes just like chicken parmesan, but not with all the fuss to prep the chicken.  This would also be a good meal to freeze if you wanted to make a few pans up at a time and freeze some for another time.

If you love chicken parmesan and are looking for a quicker easier way to make it, then try this out
