What I don’t love, though, is the whole egg dip and breading process. It takes me a long time to get through all my chicken, and I end up with half of the breadcrumb mixture on the counter, floor, and everywhere but on the chicken. So, I decided to throw the chicken in with my pasta and make a pasta bake. I didn’t want to miss out on the crunch, though, so I just put the bread crumbs on top, which worked out really well, and most of the breadcrumbs actually made it to where they belonged.
Best of all – the pasta bake was a big hit. My three year-old had seconds and even asked for it for lunch the next day, which is practically a miracle. And if you’re looking for a homemade garlic bread recipe to go alongside the pasta, my garlic cheese bread is quick, easy, and delicious.
