Chicken Pizzaiola

Question: what do you do when the entire evenings’ plans have completely fallen apart – and you’ve NO CLUE what to make for dinner? And going out is not an option due to the tremendous amount of homework the posse have?



I put this together so fast I even impressed Alexander 🙂

Chicken Pizzaiola – adapted from America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

3 cups marinara sauce
Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil seasoning
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 450 F.  Spread the tomato sauce in a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Seasoning, then lay the chicken on top of the tomato sauce.  Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the cheeses over the top of the chicken. Continue to bake until the cheese melts and the chicken is cooked through (an instant read thermometer should read 160 F), about 5 more minutes.
