Blue Ribbon Recipe

A flavorful and easy-to-make dish that's a great weeknight dinner. It's almost like a baked chicken Parmesan served over pasta. The chicken, baked with herbs, has great flavor. Then, it's placed on top of ziti and smothered in sauce and cheese. This is one tasty dish. Seasoned just right, serve this with a side salad and bread for a fantastic dinner.

How To Make baked chicken with provolone and ziti

Test Kitchen Tips
For our photos, we cooked an entire box of ziti, doubled the chicken, seasonings, and cheese to make 4 servings. We suggest heating up a little bit of extra sauce for serving in case anyone wants to add more sauce to their dish.
  • Herbs sprinkled on chicken breasts in a baking dish.
    Spray baking pan with a non-stick spray. Put the chicken breasts in a baking pan. Sprinkle herbs on top of chicken breasts. Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.
  • Heating sauce in a saucepan.
    When the chicken is close to being done, heat the sauce in a medium saucepan.
  • Ziti cooking in a pot.
    Cook ziti according to directions on the box.
  • Cooked ziti in a pot with butter.
    Once the ziti is cooked and drained, return to the pot and put a pat of butter in it. Mix well.
  • Buttered pasta poured into a baking dish.
    Pour buttered pasta into a baking dish.
  • Cooked chicken on top of the ziti with Parmesan sprinkled on top.
    When the chicken is finished baking, put it on top of the ziti and sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese.
  • Sauce covering the pasta.
    Pour the sauce on top of the chicken and pasta.
  • Provolone cheese on top of the sauce.
    Placed sliced cheese on top of chicken.
  • Broiling the dish until the cheese is melted.
    Put under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
