Super Easy Chicken Parmesan & Pasta Casserole

Delish! Even your picky eaters will enjoy this simple main dish.


  • 1 small rotisserie chicken (pulled into small pieces)
  • 1/2 lb pasta (about 3 cups dry)
  • 1 (24oz) jar marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a medium size baking dish (I used a 7×9 dish).
  2. In a large pan or pot, cook and drain the pasta according the package directions.
  3. Place the drained pasta back into the pot and mix with the marinara sauce, chicken, HALF of the mozzarella, HALF of the parmesan, and 1-2 tsp of Italian seasoning.
  4. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes over medium-low heat and then spread it evenly onto the bottom of your baking dish; sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese over top.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the panko bread crumbs, melted butter and garlic powder; sprinkle it evenly over the top of the mozzarella.
  6. Bake uncovered on the center rack for about 15 minutes or until the panko crust turns golden brown.
  7. Serve alone or with salad, veggies and/or breadsticks. Enjoy!
