Easy Chicken Parmesan


  • 1 jar Mid’s marinara pasta sauce, divided
  • 2-3 pieces Heinen’s Daily Bites Cooked Chicken Romano
  • 1 cup Miceli's fancy shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s grated parmesan cheese
  • Heinen’s artisan organic spaghetti


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F
  2. Line the bottom of a baking dish with ½ – 1 cup of the pasta sauce. Top with the chicken in a single layer. Pour 1 – 1 ½ cups sauce over the top; sprinkle with the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
  3. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  4. While the chicken bakes, cook the pasta in salted water to al dente. Heat the remaining pasta sauce and toss with the cooked pasta.
  5. Serve the chicken over the cooked pasta.
