  • 3 cups Water
  • 1 1/2 lbs Thin Cut Chicken Breast
  • 1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

  4. Add in the Barilla Marinara Sauce and stir it up
  5. Place your chicken breasts on top of the water, sauce, and pasta combination
  6. Wrap your pan tightly with aluminum foil, this will help to trap in moisture for the pasta and the chicken to cook

  8. Remove from the oven and add on the Mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and sprinkle with some garlic salt with parsley
