1 (12 ounce) can
chicken chunks, drained
shredded mozzarella cheese
seasoned bread crumbs
This sounded easy, fast, and tasty. I tried it with penne, since the store was out of rotini. The earlier review said to add more sauce, I added a half cup more, could have done a bit more, but I have to remember, this is a casserole. I doubled the reciped, and added 2 tablespoons of italian seasoning. My friends loved it so much, that they begged for the recipe. I'll do it again, but next time I want to add cheese on top for that nice crispy topping. Ooh, I started out with the Wasabi Secret Salad, which was a HUGE hit with this dish!
I did use spaghetti noodles instead of rotini. This dish tasted like it was missing something. If I was going to make it again I would use more sauce (2 1/2 cups) and less chicken (9ozs.) The bread crums did get crunchy like parm. breading does.
This was good! I used 16 oz of meat from a chicken breast that I cooked beforehand. Also, I added 2 tps of Italian spices, 2.5 cups of sauce, and 1 cup bread crumbs on top.
Wow amazing!!!! I did change a lot but this is a great base. I used normal noodles, real chicken breaded in bread crumbs and parm, cooked in a skillet, and added some parm to the bread crumb topping and WOW! thats some awesome flavor! Add a little more sauce about a half a cup and PERFECT!
Loved this recipe very easy. I made with 2 chicken breasts cut up and cooked in a bit of olive oil and seasoning. FAmily all loved it. Used a bit of extra sauce as suggested in the comments.
This was ok. It seemed very dry and sort of bland. I think more sauce/less noodles and some salt and pepper would help. With some modification I would make again.
This was good, especially for a large crowd. I followed the suggestions of the previous raters and doubled the sauce and that made worked great! I also added some spices (basil, oregano) and sliced fresh mozzarella on top with the bread crumbs. Everyone liked it.
This was a tasty casserole, although I made many modifications. Based on other reviews, I included a whole jar of Newman's marinara sauce. I also added 2/3 cup of diced raw red peppers (the crunch was really tasty in this dish), 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning, 1/2 cup of pureed carrots, 1 small can of V-8 vegetable juice (5.5 fluid ounces) and two tablespoons of wheat germ (to add extra vitamins and minerals) and I used 1 1/2 cups of steamed chicken rather than using canned chicken. I also added extra mozzarella cheese on top and then topped it with the bread crumbs. This was a big hit with my preschooler son!
