Baked Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Chicken Parmesan is so awesome, but sooo time consuming with the breading. Making it into a casserole cuts your prep time drastically. Using packaged stuff or croutons instead of bread crumbs keeps that crunch  you expect from Chicken Parm. Try this super easy casserole and be wowed with how easy it was and how much it tastes like traditional Chicken Parmesan!
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves organic garlic, crushed
1/4 ts hot red pepper flakes
8 organic chicken thighs, boneless
2 cups organic marinara sauce
 8 oz organic mozzarella, shredded
4 oz organic Parmesan, grated
5-oz package organic whole wheat stuffing (check the seasonings to make sure it goes with the italian theme) or use whole wheat croutons

Drizzle olive oil in a baking dish. Mix in the crushed garlic and red pepper. Lay the chicken in the dish. Top with marinara sauce. Sprinkle with half the cheeses. Evenly sprinkle the stuffing mix or croutons on top of the cheese. Top with the rest of the cheeses. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, check for doneness with a meat thermometer.
