Easy Chicken Manicotti

Not my favorite...Next time I'm just doing cheese manicotti!

Sauce (May use a jar store bought sauce if you prefer)
  • 1 14oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato sauce (any flavor)
  • garlic powder, onion powder, basil to taste
Ingredients
  • Spaghetti Sauce (see above)
  • 2-3 TBSP water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 lb uncooked chicken tenderloins, cut into pieces
  • 4 oz uncooked manicotti shells (about 1/2 pkg)
  • 4 slices 2% mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Chopped fresh basil leaves, if desired

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Mix water into sauce. Spread about 1/3 of the pasta sauce mixture in 9x9-inch baking dish coated in cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle garlic powder on chicken. Insert chicken into uncooked manicotti shells, stuffing from each end of shell to fill if necessary. Place shells on pasta sauce in baking dish. Pour remaining pasta sauce evenly over shells, covering completely. Cover with foil.
  3. Bake about 1 hour or until chicken is no longer pink in center and shells are tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with basil.
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.
Makes 5 servings (2 pieces/serving)
