I love this Easy Chicken Parmesan Casserole recipe because it's...well...easy. It has all the wonderful flavors and textures of chicken cutlet parmesan, in a deconstructed, easy to prepare casserole. How can you go wrong? Make some spaghetti on the side, spoon this on top, with some crispy Italian bread and you are good to go. It's also great spooned directly into the Italian bread for a chicken parmesan hero sandwich. YUM.

I love chicken parmesan, but almost never make it at home because it seems complicated. This recipe sounds so easy and looks delicious! I'm sure chicken parmesan will taste just as delicious in casserole form.

This was a pretty tasty dish. My entire family loved it! Next time, I may leave off the croutons-- I am not sure they were needed. I would rather make dinner rolls and serve them on the side, instead. Otherwise, A recipe!!
