Chicken Stuffed Manicotti
jar of marinara
about 3 cups -
homemade is preferred
or 4 large breasts, pounded thin and cut into 3-4 strips each
uncooked manicotti shells
basil or parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13"x9" baking dish by spraying with cooking spray.
Combine marinara and water (if making your own, let it cool first). Pour about 1/2 of the sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
Rinse chicken tenders and pat dry. Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Stuff chicken into the manicotti. It may be necessary to cut chicken width-wise and stuff shells from both ends.
Arrange manicotti in the prepared baking dish. Cover with remaining sauce and cover the entire dish with foil.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes, until pasta is tender and chicken is cooked through.
Remove foil and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with fresh, chopped herbs (basil, parsley) and serve immediately.
This recipe can easily be cut in half and made in an 8"x8" baking dish.
