Chicken Parmesan Meatball Casserole

This simple chicken Parmesan casserole recipe has all the flavors of traditional Chicken Parmesan without the mess of frying chicken! This can also be one of your go to freezer meals that your whole family will love!

I have a confession to make.

I've been rocking this domestic thing. Laundry, vacuuming, all that jazz. You guys, I even make my bed in the mornings. I have never been a make your bed type of person. Ever.

That's not the confession, though. That was just me bragging.

The confession? I have been failing at dinner. Hardcore.

My husband works some rather unpredictable hours. When things go wrong at work, he has to stick around and fix them. It's a bummer when it comes time to cook dinner.

I've told him that 6:30 is dinner time and he can either be home then or he can microwave left overs when he does decide to drop by. The thing is, on the nights that I'm pretty sure he isn't going to make it on time, the kids and I eat random junk. Cereal, my favorite cold sandwich, chips with restaurant style salsa, oatmeal. Whatever, if it takes me less than 5 minutes, I serve it.

This chicken Parmesan meatball casserole is my way of making up for the lackluster dinners we've been having. It's full of melty cheese, healthy chicken, and the tomato sauce totally counts as a veggie.

Plus, pasta reheats like a dream and is usually even better the next day! My whole family ate this, although I did have to chop the meatballs up into tiny pieces for my daughter. She hates meatballs, unless she doesn't know she's eating meatballs and then she loves them. Kids are weird.

I think you're going to love the traditional chicken Parmesan flavors in this recipe, especially because it's so much easier than frying chicken! The meatballs bake in no time which make this a nice weeknight meal, too!
