Chicken-Parmesan Meatball Casserole
Betty blogger Jessica Walker dishes up a time-savvy twist on a classic Italian dish.
Who doesn’t love Chicken Parmesan? Crispy-fried chicken topped with sauce and delectable cheese atop a bed of fresh-cooked pasta. Hello, my mouth is watering just typing about it! Since I can’t ever leave well-enough alone, I set out to find a way to enjoy all these luscious flavors and textures, but in a less time-intensive way. What I came up with is truly the definition of a weeknight winner. Take a look!
First, let’s make some meatballs. Confession…I’m kind of a novice when it comes to making meatballs. Also, I’ve never used ground chicken in my life before testing this recipe. So, if I can do it, you can do it. It was so easy! All you need is some ground chicken, bread crumbs (I used Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs—the seasoning is just right!), grated Parmesan and the secret, flavor-boosting ingredient, Progress Recipe Starters Fire Roasted Tomato cooking sauce.
