Chicken Parmesan Casserole

I'm back with a great dish I have been wanting to try forever, Chicken Parmesan Casserole. This recipe was a cinch to make and so good!   

I have seen this recipe a number of times over the years and decided to try a version from You can check out the great reviews here.    

With just a few ingredients and only minutes to throw together, dinner was ready in about an hour....winner! It was gobbled up tonight, with only one serving left that my husband is more than happy to take to work tomorrow for lunch.

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

  • 6 (5-6 ounce) Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Halves
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • Hot Red Pepper Flakes, to taste
  • 2 Cups Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Basil, Chopped
  • 2 Cups Mozzarella, Shredded
  • 1 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 (5 ounce package) Garlic Flavored Croutons
Please head to for the directions and to print the recipe. While you're there, be sure to read the great reviews!

I cut my chicken breasts in thirds. I have seen other recipes that cut the chicken into bite size pieces.

I decided to cover my casserole 10 minutes into baking because the cheese was starting to brown and I didn't want it to burn. I have a brand new oven and I'm still getting used to it - I am also getting used to cooking and baking in high altitude. You may want to check your casserole while baking, to make sure your cheese doesn't burn.    

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Are they croutons crunchy? My husband would not be able to eat if they were still crunchy hard -- just curious. Thanks.

Thanks, Mel! I'll be making this again soon!

Yes, they are crunchy but no too hard. Maybe if you crushed the croutons your husband may be able to eat the casserole.
