Delish Dish: Parmesan Chicken a la Alex

So there I was, staring into the fridge and wondering what in the world I was going to cook up for dinner. I was looking at mushrooms ready to go bad, a half a jar of marinara sauce, and some leftover spinach. Hmmm I thought, how about some sort of Parmesan Chicken? And so there you have it, Parmesan Chicken a la Alex (which by the way, my husband won’t stop giving me a hard time for–the atrocity of naming a dish after myself!). Enjoy!

Serves 3 – 4 (or 2 adults and 2 kids).


  • 2 breasts of chicken, filleted (so you have 4 pieces total)
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 jar of marinara sauce (I used half, but I’m a sauce person, and a whole jar would’ve been better)
  • 2 cups cooked pasta (I used Rotini)
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder for seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Season chicken with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  • Bake chicken for 20 minutes
  • Cook pasta while chicken is baking
  • After pasta is cooked, place in oven proof skillet that has been coated with olive oil (I used a cast-iron frying pan)
  • Spread spinach on top of pasta, then layer mushrooms on top. Cooked chicken goes on top of mushrooms, then pour marinara sauce over everything. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Put under broiler for about 5 minutes, until cheese is brown and bubbly.
