Chicken Parmesan Casserole

This is just about the easiest dish you will ever put together, and it tastes FANTASTIC!  Much easier than traditional chicken parmesan, with all the flavor (and healthier too!).

Chicken Parmesan Casserole
Recipe and photo from Food Wishes

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
red pepper flakes, to taste
2 c. marinara sauce
1 Tbsp. dried basil
6 oz. mozzarella
3 oz. Parmesan
1 5oz. package garlic croutons

In a 9x13" dish, mix olive oil and garlic and spread over entire bottom of pan.
Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Layer chicken breasts over everything.
Top with marinara sauce, and sprinkle with basil.
Sprinkle half of the mozzarella and Parmesan over sauce.
Evenly distribute croutons over cheese, and top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through (I actually needed to bake mine for about 45 minutes).
