My house smelled SO good while this was cooking…
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
3 tsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp garlic powder
7 oz. angel hair pasta
26 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine Parmesan, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a small bowl and stir to combine.
Coat each chicken breast with Parmesan mixture. Place each chicken breast in casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
While chicken is cooking, cook pasta according to package directions and heat up spaghetti sauce (or pasta sauce as we call it in our house).
Serve chicken over top of pasta and pour sauce over everything.
We had this with grapes and a salad.
Did I change anything? The recipe called for 3 T of Italian seasoning and 2 T of garlic powder…that seemed like A LOT to me. The original recipe also called for broiling the chicken.
What did the family think? They loved it!

Hey Nina, what’s your jarred sauce of choice? Or do you use your own?
Hi Nina, made this for dinner tonight and it was so GOOD. The perfect family dinner. Easy and delicious. I used Prego. I know, what kind of Italian mama uses Prego, but it works in a pinch! For the cheese, I went w/good quality parm reggiano.
I am so glad you liked it. It is the perfect family dinner…what’s not to like! 🙂
I don’t usually make my own. I like Trader Joe’s Marinara and we also use a brand from New Seasons that I can’t think of right now. I know what the jar looks like though! 🙂 I think it is their store brand. I will tell you what kind we don’t use. We don’t use Muir Glen-blech!- and I won’t use any pasta sauce that has anything in it that someone who was making it at home wouldn’t put in their pasta sauce…like soybean oil.
