1 cup your favorite marinara sauce

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil


Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


Preheat the oven: Set the oven to 190°C (375°F) to ensure it is ready for baking is.
Prepare the baking dish: Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the bottom of the baking dish to prevent the chicken from sticking.

Season Chicken: Mix together Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper.Rub this mixture on both sides of the chicken breasts to add flavor.

Brown Chicken: Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken breasts until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, to retain the juices.
Preparation: Place the braised chicken in the prepared baking dish. Cover the chicken with the remaining marinara sauce, making sure each breast is well coated.


Add Cheese: Top each chicken breast generously with shredded mozzarella and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese to create a golden, cheesy crust.Bake: Place the dish in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
Rest and serve: After baking, let the dish rest for a few minutes. This allows the chicken to retain its juice and the cheese to harden a little.

Garnish and Enjoy: Add a garnish of fresh basil leaves before serving for a pop of color and an extra layer of flavor.
