I got this recipe from my friend and roommate, Jessica. Here's what she had to say about it:

"A Grandma can only be as awesome as the food that she makes, and mine is pretty dang cool. My grandmother used to always make this when we would have big family gatherings. She even made it on the night of my high school graduation because she gave me the choice of what I wanted."

"I had always thought that I was asking a lot of her when she would make this for me, because it was so freakin' good. How could this recipe not take a long time and a lot of money, when the outcome was so delicious? When I got the recipe my freshman year while living in a dorm, I was shocked at how easy, inexpensive and quick it was to make. I was almost mad that she made me think it was such a large feat. What a biatch. But her food is good, so I do indeed love her for that -- and the Christmas presents."

She's a bit of a character. Anyway, here's the recipe.

Whatcha Need:


- You'll also need a frying pan to cook the chicken, and a baking pan to throw it all together in.

That's it. Easy, right?

How It's Done:

Start by cooking the chicken on the stove. Put a smidge of oil in a pan, and season the chicken pieces up a little with the salt and pepper.

Next, take your baking pan (I'm using an eight-inch cake pan) and pour enough marinara sauce into it to cover the bottom. Then, give the sauce a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese.

Arrange the chicken pieces in the pan on top of the sauce, and then cover them with the sliced provolone cheese.


I might have gone a bit overboard on the cheese - but it was totally worth it.

Cover the provolone and chicken with more sauce, and then sprinkle the whole thing with more parmesan cheese.

Now, bake that bad boy in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until the top is brown and bubbly. While the chicken is in the oven, cook and drain your pasta.

Time to eat!
