1To begin making Chicken Parmesan Casserole, you need to cook the pasta. Here, you may follow all of the instructions written in the package and cook the pasta until it is thoroughly cooked. Next, you may drain and rinse the pasta by placing it in a colander.
2After that, prepare a large skillet and heat it with olive oil over medium heat. Then, chop the chicken breasts into a quarter inch thick to fry them easily. However, before frying the chicken, you need to do some other steps as written in the following step below.
3You need to prepare some bowls, each filled with flour, egg and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. Then, coat the chicken into each bowl which starts in flour and ends up in breadcrumbs. When the oil is hot enough, fry the chicken until the color turns brown.
4Then, prepare a large bowl to combine other ingredients like cooked pasta, a cup of mozzarella cheese, fried chicken, a half cup of shredded parmesan and the marinara sauce as well. Also, make sure you combine all of these ingredients until they are completely mixed.
5To continue, prepare a casserole dish with 9×13 inch sized and add with aluminum foil to cover. Then, spread the pasta mixture evenly into the dish. After that, bake over 350 Fahrenheit-degree or 180 celsius-degree for around 30 minutes until it is cooked thorugh.
Now, it is about to serve. After 30 minutes passed, take the casserole out of the oven and open the cover to add with the remaining cheese. After that, bake again for around 10 minutes to melt the cheese as well as to heat the casserole. To garnish, you may add chopped basil to improve the taste and the look.
