How to Make One-Pan Baked Chicken Parmesan and Penne
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and pour your pasta into an ungreased 13″x9″ dish.
Mix together Italian seasoning to your tomato sauce and mix it in.
I prefer to add my own seasonings to tomato sauces, whether it’s in a jar or a can. It adds in so much extra flavor.
Stir water and pasta sauce into the pan with penne. Chop onion into thin slices and place over pasta. Then top with mozzarella.
Trim your chicken breasts of any fat and layer on top of the penne.
Place the chicken on top of the onion and noodles. Drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil.
Mix together grated Parmesan cheese and panko crumbs in a small bowl. Sprinkle onto the chicken breasts. Press the crumb mixture into the chicken to adhere.
I topped the dish with parsley at the end, but that is optional.
That was pretty simple, wasn’t it? It’s time to bake the dish!
Place the pan in the preheated oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 32-37 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
Your noodles will come out tender and cooked through as well!
