Three Cheese Pasta Chicken Bake

Three Cheese Pasta Chicken Bake

When you’re looking for chicken recipes for dinner it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. At least I get stuck in recipe ruts sometimes.

Chicken dinner ideas for chicken noodle casseroles are sometimes a bit boring. Chicken needs help sometimes to keep it interesting.

This chicken casserole recipe is a very good solution to chicken dinner mental log jams. This recipe merges a really good Pasta recipe and chicken breast dinner idea into one great recipe.  And there is cheese 🙂

Wet cold weather always inspires casseroles and comfort food! Twisted Tuna Casserole, Mac N Cheese Ham Casserole  and plenty more are on this blog. We tend to go carby when the chilly months get us down.

When I found a three cheese pasta dinner idea in vegetarian mode it became a winner winner chicken dinner. And that’s no kidding.

This chicken parmesan casserole is moist and full of cheesy flavor. Chunks of Cheesy Alfredo coated chicken float throughout this casserole.

The top has a layer of seasoned croutons all crushed up. Who needs boring bread crumbs? Go for the flavor.

The chicken is actually grilled. We have used our George Foreman grill and our big grill for grilling the chicken breasts. If you have neither of these options handy use my Pan fried Chicken Recipe.

The first time we made this casserole The result was wonderfully flavorful and VERY filling. This chicken casserole is HUGE! You can easily cut it in half for a small family.

We had so much left over we brought some over to Mom and Dad’s to share in the dinner! everyone agreed it’s the perfect chicken comfort food dinner.

We used a bottled Alfredo sauce. If you want you can easily make your own Alfredo sauce.

UPDATE: We have now made this recipe several times. It is EXCELLENT with homemade alfredo sauce instead of store bought. Also crushing Focaccia Croutons for a topping is a wonderful finishing touch and garnish with peppers. So Good!

Three Cheese Pasta Chicken Bake

This chicken dinner is easy to make entirely from scratch. Including the homemade Alfredo sauce. Notice the pop of red color? That’s another bit of flavor you won’t want to miss out on.

Three Cheese Pasta Chicken Bake Recipe:

Notes: This casserole  holds together well and the pasta absorbs a bunch of the liquid so the flavor is powerfully good. Not a sloppy casserole but moist, noodly and rich tasting. Enjoy!
