Baked Chicken With Provolone and Ziti

Karen Rees


This is delicious!

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.

Note: 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
