How to Make Baked Garlic Parmesan Marinara Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. HOW TO MAKE IT:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
    In a bowl, blend the olive oil and garlic. In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil, Italian Seasoning and pepper. Dip each chicken breast in the oil mixture, then in the bread crumb mixture. Arrange the coated chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish, and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
    Bake 30-40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
    Remove from oven and spoon Marinara Sauce over chicken, then top with Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Sprinkle Parmesan and Diced Parsley over all then place back in Oven to Melt the Cheese about 5-10 Minutes. Serve with your favorite sides.
  2. How to make the Mariana Sauce:
    How to Make it:
    Heat the olive oil in a large (12-inch) skillet. Add the onion and saute over medium heat until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the wine and cook on high heat, scraping up all the brown bits in the pan, until almost all the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, parsley, salt, and pepper. Cover, and simmer on the lowest heat for 15 minutes.
