Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti




I'm back home and back in the kitchen after our relaxing beach vacation in Michigan. Time goes by so quickly while on vacation. Wish we had another week. Sigh....
Today I found this recipe on the my fitness pal website and it sounded so good and something that my family would love. Chicken Parmesan mixed with pasta and lots of cheese? Yes, please! It was delicious!

Ingredients
1 lb chicken breast tenders
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese,
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 egg (I used egg beaters)
1/4 cup milk ( I used skim)
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 jar (1 lb. 10 oz.) spaghetti sauce (I used Prego's Light Smart)
1 lb ziti 1/2 grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Cut chicken tenders into 1.5 inch cubes. Dip chicken cubes in egg/milk mixture, and then roll in bread crumb mixture.

In a medium pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook chicken pieces until browned, approx. 4 minutes on both sides. While chicken is cooking, prepare ziti per package directions until al dente. Drain and pour into a lightly greased baking dish. Pour spaghetti sauce over pasta, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Arrange chicken in single layer over pasta. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken, and bake in oven at 350 F for 25 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Enjoy!
