Pinterest Made Me Do It

I love, love, love to eat chicken Parmesan; in fact, that's what we had for Christmas dinner last year. But I don't love to cook it.  It's a little bit more time consuming than I like, especially on weeknights.
SO...when I saw this little gem on Pinterest, you bet your hiney I pinned it.  When I clicked the link and saw that the blog title was named "Chicken Parmesan Casserole--HOLY CRAP!" then I knew it had to be good.  You can't just blindly make that kind of statement without backing it up.  The blog is very cool too; these girls apparently spent an entire summer making recipes from Pinterest and blogging about it. 
The only thing I modified in their recipe is that I used thawed chicken breast tenders and cubed them, instead of whole breasts.  Put a little olive oil and garlic in the bottom of a baking dish, then put in the chicken pieces.  I covered it with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese and crushed croutons.  Repeat the layering process. Bake on 350 for about 45 minutes, I think.  I was so surprised that the croutons gave it the taste of breading on the chicken.  I served it over bowtie pasta because that's how we roll.  Add a salad and some bread and it's done.  DELISH!

If I'm remembering right, even the kiddos ate this one.
Sorry, Blogger is giving me fits today so my photos are jacked up.  Oh well.
