When I saw this easy take on the classic Chicken Parmesan over at Food Wishes, I knew I had to give it a try!!  I love making my own sauce, the flavor is amazing and it doesn’t take that long!

The croutons or crackers in this recipe soak up some of the sauce on the bottom but stay nice and crispy on top creating a delicious crust!  This easy casserole was a huge hit with my whole family!
