Chicken Broccoli Parmesan Bake

I didn't really feel like doing too much cooking this weekend, so I decided to stick with this really easy chicken bake. The only thing that really takes any time is baking the chicken, and all you do is put it in the oven and forget about it for an hour. If you wanted, you could just buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and cut that up instead! Serve this alongside some pasta or veggies for a fantastic, easy dinner. 

Here's what you'll need:
  • 2lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs $6.28
  • 1/2 lb Broccoli $0.84
  • 2 cups Tomato Sauce $1.33
  • 1 cup Fat Free Mozzarella $1.42
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan $0.83
  • 1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs $0.21
  • 2 teaspoons Parsley $0.14
  • 2 teaspoons Oregano $0.19

Serving Size: 1/8 of the pan
Total Servings: 8

*Forgot the broccoli in the first picture, oops!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken thighs on the sheet and cook for 1 hour until there is no pink in the center. Then chop into about 1 inch pieces. 

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, then add your chicken to the bottom of the dish. Add your broccoli on top of the chicken.

I used about half a bag of frozen broccoli spears that I thawed in warm water, cut into bite sized pieces, and dried with a paper towel.

Next, spread the sauce over the top. Try and distribute it evenly, and make sure to get the sides. I highly recommend Eating Right Garlic and Herb tomato sauce. I sometimes just eat it out of the jar with a spoon....

Cover with both cheeses, and then top with the breadcrumbs, parsley, and oregano. Make sure to measure the cheeses, I know its tempting to just dump on the whole bag. 

Bake for 20 minutes (still at 350) and you're done! serve alongside some pasta or veggies.

Happy Cooking!
