A friend of mine gave me the original recipe, which of course I promptly modified. This is simple and yummy! Note that the ricotta does not stay IN the shells, it blends with the sauce to make everything extra cheesy.

How to Make Easy Chicken Manicotti

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Put ricotta in a bowl, and mix herbs to taste. (recommended: garlic salt or powder, fresh ground pepper, basil/oregano, Italian herb mix.) Mix in chicken until thoroughly coated.
