Microwave Chicken Parmesan Bake


Microwave Chicken Parmesan Bake

6 Min

This Chicken Parmesan recipe sounds so basic that you're probably wondering how good it could be. Well, go ahead and try it... and see for yourself!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 pound frozen chicken nuggets
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Spread half of the spaghetti sauce over the bottom of a microwave-safe 9" x 13" baking dish. Layer the nuggets evenly over the sauce then sprinkle with the spinach. Pour the remaining spaghetti sauce over the spinach.
  2. Microwave at 90% power for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese and microwave for 2 minutes, or until heated through and the cheese is melted.


All we need now is a big garden salad and a loaf of hot, crusty Italian bread to get your gang yelling, "Ah é molto bene!!" (Tha'ts Italian for OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!)

I have made a variation of this dish. It's better if you can find chicken bites (half the size of nuggets) which are easier to eat. Add a small can of sliced mushroom to the sauce if you want. I poured the heated chicken and sauce over rotini pasta, then sprinkled grated parmesan over the top. A fast and easy meal, especially for kids. You can cut this recipe in half by using a 14-ounce size spaghetti sauce.

Reading over the recipe, I see mozzarella cheese as an ingredient, but there is no Parmesan shown. So, where does the Parmesan fit in - is it to be sprinkled on after being removed from the oven after melting the mozzarella!
