By Doula Karen

Make this for clients all the time!


  • 2     Tbsp olive oil
  • 2     cloves garlic, crushed and thoroughly chopped
  • ¼    tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6     skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2     c. prepared marinara sauce
  • ¼    c. chopped fresh basil
  • 1     (8 oz.) package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½    c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1     (5 oz.) package garlic croutons


  1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2. Coat the bottom of a 9×13 inch casserole dish with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic and red pepper flakes.
  3. Arrange the chicken breasts in bottom of the dish and pour marinara sauce over the chicken.
  4. Sprinkle basil over the sauce and top with half the mozzarella cheese, followed by half the Parmesan cheese.
  5. Sprinkle on the croutons, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until cheese and croutons are golden brown and the chicken is no longer pink inside (approx. 35 min. to an hour). An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast should read at least 160º F.
