Chicken and Spaghetti Parmesan Recipe

Chicken and Spaghetti Parmesan

Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes

My kids like this next recipe so much that they've said, "Mom, dinner was really good. Can we have it again tomorrow night?" Now, that works for me!

What you'll need

  • 1 pound spaghetti, or other pasta, cooked to desired doneness
  • 1 24oz jar of your favorite pasta sauce
  • 4-6 breaded chicken patties OR un-breaded, cooked chicken breasts (I do this more often than not)
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Helpful Tip:

It's important to add sauce to the pasta before placing the dish in the oven; plain pasta doesn't bake as well. My kids like this even without the chicken.


Serves 4-6

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a lasagna dish or other rectangular baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Toss cooked pasta and 2/3 jar of sauce together and spread evenly into pan.
  3. Sprinkle spaghetti with 1/2 cup of mozzarella.
  4. Top with chicken patties. Pour remaining sauce over all and sprinkle with the rest of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes until heated through.
  6. Serve each chicken patty with spaghetti underneath.
