  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish that is deep enough to allow at least one inch between the chicken and the top of the dish.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, stir together tomato sauce, tomato paste, sugar, parsley, basil, oregano, and garlic.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss chicken with bread crumbs until completely covered. Arrange chicken in baking dish and sprinkle to taste with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Top chicken with half of shredded Cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Pour tomato sauce evenly over chicken. Reserve half of the remaining Cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, and sprinkle the rest over the chicken and sauce.
  4. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for about 50 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove foil, and top with remaining Cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Return dish to oven and cook, uncovered, until the cheese on top melts. Remove pan from oven and let sit five minutes before serving.

This wasn't bad at all, I've tried it twice, once as written (except for seasoning the sauce to my tastes) and once using a 6 cheese Italian blend. Both times the meal tasted good, the chicken ...

My husband and I really liked this recipe. I was really short on time so I ended up using my favorite spaghetti sauce instead of making the tomato sauce. It still turned out very good. The ch...

It was very good. I ended up making 5 pieces of chicken breast and a vegetable soup out of it. I first sauteed some onion with a lot of galic in a pot. Then I added 1.5 can of large tomato sauc...

Family liked it. I think I prefer Chicken Parmagian where it ends up crunchier because it isn't baked in sauce. But this was different and a put in the oven and forget about it kind of dish wh...
