Mozzarella Chicken

Hey guys! It has been a long time! Between work, homework, cheer, etc. life has been very busy here. Dinners have been random hodgepodge meals that we have fit in  between activities.  Nothing really blog worthy, though; quesadillas, pizza, sandwiches, eggs, and cereal have all  been staples. Tonight is actually the first time all week that I have had a chance to cook a main dish meal . So easy to make and loved by all at the dinner table!

Mozzarella Chicken


4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
8 slices of mozzarella
1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce
1/2 pound of whatever pasta you have on hand- I used penne


Preheat oven to 350. Spray a small casserole dish with cooking spray. Open up chicken by slicing 2/3 of the way through the meat. Add one slice of mozzarella in the middle. Top with 1/2 of the jar of marinara sauce and the other slice of cheese. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165. Put it on broil for a few minutes to get that pretty coloring on the top of the cheese. Serve with a side of cooked pasta combined with the rest of the sauce and some toasty bread.
