Chicken Parmesan Casserole

I found this recipe for chicken parmesan on Pinterest. I like chicken parmesan, but I don't like all of the carbs with all of the breading and then the pasta that is served with it. When I saw this, it looked filling and low carb. Win!
All I needed was cut up chicken breast (I used 5 breasts of varying sizes), olive oil, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese (not pictured), oregano, garlic powder, basil, bread crumbs, and spaghetti sauce.

I put the cut up chicken in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, and basil. ( I just sprinkled them on. I also added salt & pepper.) I cooked them until they were completely done, then I set the pan aside.

Then I mixed up 3/4 cup bread crumbs (I used roasted garlic, but you can use plain), 2 teaspoons olive oil, basil, and oregano. I stirred it until it was crumbly. 

Next, I sprayed the a baking dish with cooking spray, spread out the chicken and topped it with sauce. I used about 3/4 of the jar.

Then I sprinkled 1 cup of parmesan and 2 cups of mozzarella over the sauce.

The breadcrumbs go on last. Just sprinkle them on top.

Bake in the oven at 350* for 30 minutes, let sit for 5 minutes, and serve!

I actually made mine in the morning, so all I had to do was pop it in the oven before dinner. We had ours with a salad. It was very yummy!
