Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Made  times

"Perfect for potluck meals, family gatherings, or in a smaller batch, for a winter comfort food meal for the family. Just my take on traditional Chicken Parmesan. I came up with this for my wife's corporate potluck lunch. She wanted Chicken Parmesan, but it was too difficult to feed 20 people the conventional way. Figured a casserole would work just as well. It did!"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place the flour, egg, and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls. Mix the garlic powder into the bread crumbs. Working in batches, coat the chicken breast in the flour, then dip them in the egg, and finally coat with the bread crumbs. Carefully fry the coated chicken in the hot oil in small batches until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the fried chicken over paper towels.
  4. Combine cooked pasta, fried chicken, 1/2 package of mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Stir in the marinara sauce. Pour the red wine into the empty marinara sauce jar; cover and shake the jar, and empty the contents into the bowl of pasta. Stir to combine. Spread pasta mixture in a large casserole dish, and cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 package of mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese. Return to the oven, and continue baking until the cheese has melted, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve hot.

with a few little tweeks you can lighten this dish up, such as bake your tenders not deep fry saving lots of calories, but as is this was very tasty.

this was good! A quick meal to put together. I did not fry my chicken I cooked it in a pan with olive oil, garlic, and onion. I seasoned the chicken with italian seasoning. I think this would b...

I didn't want to deep fry the chicken so I browned the chicken in a skillet (no Flour). This turned out great!

ok first things first I made AS IS. I was nervous about the wine but it made for an incredible sauce. All of our kids came back for seconds. Why 4 stars. I think I would have liked it better if ...

I bumped up the flavor in my breading by adding more oregano, basil and onion powder. I didn't need a full two cups of oil to fry my chicken pieces in, just enough to cover the bottom of the pa...

We loved it. Made this last night we loved it. My son who rarely says anything about my cooking said "that is like the best thing you ever made hope you make it again. I baked the chicken instea...

It was good, I actually bought frozen chicken strips, deep fried them and cut them up instead of breading my own chicken-I was in a time crunch.

I tried it and it's good, I'll always prefer the 'real thing' but this would be great for a group.

I decided to make this because I love the simplicity of casseroles and my husband loves chicken parmesan. WOW, what a hit! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe.

Okay, I egged/breaded the chicken in bags and then baked them at 350 for 20 minutes. I followed the next steps of the recipes, except I put the cheeses on immediately and baked it for 30 minute...
