Chicken Parm Baked Ziti

A combination of chicken parmesan and baked ziti that is sure to thrill any Italian food lover!


    2 chicken breasts
    1 cup plain bread crumbs
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    2 cloves of garlic
    1/2 tsp garlic powder 
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper 
    1 egg 1/4 cup milk 
    2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
    1 jar spaghetti sauce 
    2/3 lb ziti 
    1/2 grated parmesan cheese 
    1 cup mozzarella cheese


Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. In a small bowl, mix egg and milk. Cut chicken tenders into 1.5 inch cubes. Dip chicken cubes in egg/milk mixture, and then roll in bread crumb mixture.
Saute garlic cloves in olive oil over medium heat. Pan fry chicken pieces until browned, approx. 4 minutes on both side.
While chicken is cooking, prepare ziti per package directions until al dente.
When chicken is done, remove from heat and let sit on a paper towel.
When ziti is done cooking, drain and pour into greased (Pam) 9x14 pan. Pour spagetti sauce over pasta, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
Arrange chicken in single layer over pasta. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken, and bake in oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until heated through and cheese melted.
