    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 8x8x2 inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.
    2. Bring medium sized pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add pasta and follow pasta instructions. When tender, drain pasta and set aside.
    3. Meanwhile, place olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Add onions and garlic, stirring to combine, and cook until the onions are soft and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    4. Combine chicken mixture with the cooked pasta in large bowl. Add canned tomatoes with juice, mozzarella cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix gently until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Place mixture in prepared baking dish.
    5. In a small bowl mix together bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle on top of pasta. Dot the top with slices of butter. Bake until top is gold brown, about 30 minutes.

    Doubled recipe because I thought it wouldn't be enough for four people. We had about half left over, who knew! Added pizza sauce, Italian seasoning, and used Italian bread crumbs based on previous reviews of this being bland. I'm not sure this will be in the rotation, but it was nice to try something different.

    Not good. Very little flavor to decomposed. Would never make again

    It’s okay, a little bland. Needs seasonings.

    I added pink sauce to the dish the first time to help it not be dry (as read from other reviews). The dish was delicious and we will very likely make it again.

    This was very meh to my family. I added seasoning to the chicken and used green Chile tomatoes but it just didn’t have enough flavor.

    Both kids really liked it! I improvised a bit. Instead of diced tomatoes, which aren’t popular in my house, I used about 1 1/2 cups of pasta sauce and rather than salt & pepper, I used Italian seasoning. I’ll definitely make it again!

    I like this, and my husband agrees. I do think you can add other ingredients or meat to customize it for your family.
