A quick and easy chicken with cheese and marinara

This is the quickest chicken recipe I know. It's especially great for working parents, although I've used it for entertaining guests, as well. I don't remember where I got it from. Actually, I think I made it up!


(Serves 4)


  1. Place chicken breasts in baking pan.
  2. Cover each breast with a few slices of cheese.
  3. Pour sauce over chicken and cheese.
  4. Cover lightly with foil.
  5. Bake in 350 oven for about 40 minutes.
  6. Spoon sauce from bottom of baking pan over chicken every 10 or 15 minutes.
  7. Remove foil for last 10 or 15 minutes of baking.


If you prefer, this can be prepared using boned chicken, in which case you should shorten the cooking time to 25 minutes.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 40 minutes cooking.
Precision: no need to measure.
