This dish is so simple but loaded with flavor. You can also use a large skillet and cook this over medium high heat.
Try using spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce instead of the crushed tomatoes if you don’t have that on hand. Also, any type of bread crumbs will do.
Sometimes, we add red pepper flakes for extra heat. You can also substitute garlic powder for the garlic salt if you prefer.
We often use different types of pasta based on what we have in the pantry. Penne, elbow and even bowtie will work!
This dish is so easy to make and adapt for what you have on hand. You can even use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts to save even more money!
