    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have made this recipe using bone-on chicken pieces also, although you might have to adjust the cooking time slightly. I double the crushed tomatoes to two cans when I make this, but that is optional, my family loves this casserole!

      My family loved this, just a touch too much red pepper flakes. I will make again!

      Sooo yummy! I made a few adjustments to this recipe - first, instead of whole chicken breasts, I cubed about 1 1/2 pounds of chicken, and breaded them before cooking. It made the dish taste like a chicken parm casserole! I also added chopped bell pepper to the sauce and used red wine instead of white. I think next time, I'll try either fresh tomatoes or canned diced instead of the can of stewed tomatoes - I'm just not a fan of the large, large chunks in the sauce. I used reduced fat mozz cheese and grated romano instead of parmesan (just a personal preference.) Overall, this is a wonderful recipe and I'll definitely make it again. It yields a LOT, so would be great for a large family or dinner party. Otherwise, you may want to consider halving the recipe.

      Great recipe! Went together pretty easily and even my picky four year old liked it. Definitely one I'd repeat. I think the only thing I'd change next time is to add a little tomato sauce ad less tomatoes to the dish, just because we like our pasta dishes with lots of sauce. Overall we thought it was Delicious! Another family hit. Thanks Kitten!! [tagged for the Think Pink Event]
