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.

This week I have been seeing TONS of back to school pics because we live very close to Indiana who start right now.  I’m saying to myself, ‘We still have 4 weeks!’.

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. 

Steps for making Chicken Parmesan

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…..

When Michigan weather is giving us it’s best version of Frozen, to fight the cold I try to stay armed with comfort food classics like this Cream of Chicken Bake.

Since the sauce is made with a combination of cream of chicken soup and a few other ingredients, I thought that would be the best name for this.  As the chicken bakes the soup, milk, garlic powder, and oregano make a delicious gravy that is perfect for topping on mashed potatoes, another comfort food favorite!

The melted cheese just tucks into every corner, the sweet onions, bites of ham all on top of tender chicken. I mean LOOK AT THIS! If this isn’t comfort food, I don’t know what it.

Speaking of cozy food, want more comfort food recipes to try?

How to make Cream of Chicken Bake:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Dice the ham and onions.  Place the ham into a bowl and set aside.

Take some butter and add to a frying pan. Sautee until a light brown then remove them and place into a bowl.

While cooking the onion combine the flour, garlic powder and oregano to a plate.  Split 3 chicken breasts so that they are now between 6-7 pieces.

To the same pan that the onion was cooked, add the olive oil.  Dredge chicken in flour mixture then add to pan.  Brown 2-3 minutes on each side.  You will not cook these all the way through, this is just to brown the chicken so cook 2-3 minutes per side only.

Add the chicken to a greased dish.

Next, it’s time to make the sauce to pour over the chicken.  In a bowl put the cream of chicken, milk, garlic powder, dried oregano, and Dijon mustard.  Stir to combine completely.

Pour on top of the browned chicken in the prepared dish. Cover with onions and diced ham.  DO NOT add the cheese at this time.
