I always love to make feel good meals that all 5 of us will love. That is where this easy chicken parmesan casserole recipe comes into play! Seriously, it is delicious! Definitely one of our favorite quick and easy casseroles.

Ok so picture this: You need to run to the store, drop 1 child off at softball practice, 1 off at band practice, go to the post office, and make dinner somewhere in between all of that. Sound familiar??

This. Is. My. Life! I do not have time for difficult or time consuming recipes, but still want YUM.

They will be the base of your casserole dinner, plus something to drink because let’s be honest we all need a bit of energy when you have kids right??!! 😉

I am all about casseroles!

They are easy to throw together, I can use leftovers if I have them, and they are just a feel good warm meal that we all enjoy.

This easy chicken parmesan casserole is right up there as one of our favorites. The base is quite simple with spaghetti sauce, canned chicken, noodles (no boiling required), and some broth. Ready to make it? Just click on my photo above to purchase them!

The cheesy bread crumb topping gives it a great texture and lots of added flavor too.

It is one of those dinners where you can dump all the ingredients in a bowl, stir, add to your casserole dish and bake.

Add your topping, let it brown, and then serve!
