My only advice to you for this recipe is to be very generous with the cheese! Cheese is what makes this dish extra special. This Chicken Parmesan Casserole is perfect. Yes, it’s perfect! This was my third time cooking it this week. It is so good that I can’t get enough of it as well as my kids and partner! You have got to give this a try and allow it to melt your hearts out! Feel free to tweak it a little to your liking. Enjoy!

1 (12 oz) can chicken chunks, drained

1. I slice the chicken into small pieces because they are easier to cook and less hassle when you eat them rather than big slices.
2. If you are health conscious, try using whole wheat paste or whole grain.
3. You can also discard the chicken and put vegetables instead.
