This is a great way to mix two favorite Italian dishes into one! And if you like more chicken, cheese or sauce...go for it! I like to mix it together before pouring it into the baking dish. It's a really tasty meal!

How to Make Chicken Parm Baked Ziti Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil ziti until al dente; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350'F.
  3. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper into plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix egg and milk.
  4. Cut chicken tenders into bite-size cubes. Dip chicken cubes in egg/milk mixture, a few at a time. Place in plastic bag with bread crumb mixture and gently shake until covered.
  5. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Pan fry chicken pieces until browned, smaller pieces take less time.

    When chicken is done, remove from heat and let sit on a paper towel.

  7. Arrange chicken in single layer over pasta. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken, and bake in 350'F. oven for 25 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
