Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  2. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Coat each chicken breast in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the crumbs to the chicken.

  5. Transfer the browned chicken breasts to a baking dish. Spoon marinara sauce over each chicken breast, covering them completely.
  6. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the marinara sauce.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
