How to Make Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions and drain well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine both breadcrumbs, oregano, basil and garlic powder in a large plastic ziploc bag. Salt & pepper chicken pieces. Whisk eggs and milk together. Dunk chicken pieces in egg mixture. Move chicken pieces to ziploc bag and shake to coat.
  4. Heat butter and oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Brown chicken pieces on all sides and place on paper towels.
  5. Combine your pasta, chicken and marinara in a casserole dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Top your casserole evenly with the Parmesan, Mozzarella and Provel.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
  7. Provel cheese is a combination of cheddar, Swiss and provolone. If you do not reside in the Midwest you may not have access to provel cheese. The best substitute is provolone. It is difficult to find shredded provolone but most deli counters sell provolone so just purchase a chunk of it and shred it yourself
