WOW. No, really. WOW. Where has this Parmesan Chicken Casserole been all of my life?  Cheesy, saucy and the chicken bakes up in a delicious sauce under these garlic croutons and then those croutons turn into this crazy amazing cheesy mess of yum. Chicken, carbs and cheese, it doesn’t get better than this!

How to Make Chicken Parmesan Casserole

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Coat the bottom of 8×8 inch casserole dish with olive oil, then spread out the minced garlic.
  • Arrange the chicken breasts in bottom of the dish, and pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Sprinkle the fresh basil over the sauce, and top with one cup of mozzarella cheese, followed by half the Parmesan cheese.
  • Spread the croutons on top, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover and bake in preheated oven until the chicken is cooked, approximately 45 minutes.

Truly, the star of this Parmesan chicken casserole is those croutons. I am in love with them. I can’t stop waxing poetic about them and the cheese and how they bake up.

Please trust me and make this Chicken Parmesan Casserole as soon as you can. I’m almost sad that summer is coming and we are going to be moving away from heavy meals like this and towards lighter fare. I’m looking forward to making this casserole just one more time before the hot weather is here!
