HOW TO MAKE CRISPY CHICKEN PARMESAN CASSEROLE
Step 1: Place the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and crushed chili pepper flakes on a shallow plate. Add the chicken breasts and marinate for about 5 minutes.
Step 2: While the chicken is marinating, prepare the oven and preheat it to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C. Using oil, cooking spray, or butter, lightly grease a baking dish.
Step 3: After marinating the chicken, lay them in the greased baking dish. On top, pour the tomato sauce and sprinkle over the Parmesan and shredded mozzarella. Lastly, lightly sprinkle with crushed pork rinds.
Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked and the cheese has melted and bubbly.
Step 5: Remove from the oven when done and garnish the casserole with some chopped basil. Serve right away. Enjoy!
