Layers of egg noodles, crispy chicken, spaghetti sauce and loads of cheese. Chicken Parmesan is a great go-to for busy weeknights.
I can’t believe we are already talking about Back To School! If your like my house, back to school also means back to sports. Busy weeknights of homework and practice call for a meal that can pull double duty-one night dinner, tomorrow leftovers or freezing half for dinner when dirtying dishes is the last thing you want to do.
Did you know that in Michigan it is the law you cannot start until after Labor Day? Some schools are starting to challenge it and getting waivers but for us, I am so glad that it’s that way. I really feel like it gives kids time to enjoy more of the warmer months. We are getting ready though because it will be here soon enough.
So as I mentioned above, this Chicken Parmesan casserole is a great meal because it makes TONS, is easy to freeze, and can be made ahead placed in the refrigerator then popped into the oven later in the evening or even the next day. Take the guess work out of dinner and add this to your dinner rotation ASAP!
How to make Chicken Parmesan:
Start to cook the egg noodles according to package directions. These are the frozen kind that are found by ravioli in the frozen food section.
Grease a 9×13 pan then cover the bottom with some of the spaghetti sauce.
While they cook chop the chicken into bite sized pieces. Heat up oil in the pan and get ready to fry the chicken. On a plate add the bread crumbs, flour and parmesan cheese.
Once the oil is heated take the chicken and dredge in the crumb mixutre then add to the hot oil.
Fry chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked through and super crisp. This is the key to a great casserole.
Both the noodles and the chicken should take around 15-20 minutes to finish.
Drain the noodles and now it’s time to layer. One layer noodles, one layer chicken, one layer cheese, one layer sauce.
Do it one more time then top with remaining cheese. Yes, use the whole bag! Sprinkle with garlic powder and parsley for a little extra oomph.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. And here you are…..
