Dump-and-Bake Healthy Chicken Parmesan

Just as cheesy and kid-friendly as the original, this Dump-and-Bake Healthy Chicken Parmesan is an easy dinner with no prep work necessary! Skip the breading, the frying, and the slicing — just place all of the ingredients in one dish and let the oven do the work. It’s a fast weeknight meal that the entire family can agree on!

A lot of you share one of my biggest struggles as a home cook: preparing a single meal that can accommodate a variety of schedules. Whether you have little ones who want to eat at 5:00 p.m., a spouse who works late, or multiple sports and activities to contend with in the evening, many of us find that we’re serving dinner in stages over the course of the day. By 9:00 p.m. it can feel like you’re a short-order cook at the local diner. Not good!

When I initially made this dinner, I assumed that we would all be eating together as a family. The boys had a snack after school to tide them over, and about the time that I was draining the pasta and pulling the Chicken Parmesan out of the oven, I received a text from Keith. He was stuck on a conference call at the office and wouldn’t be home until after 8 p.m. (when the kids were already in bed). Unfortunately, this is not an unusual occurrence.

Dump-and-Bake Healthy Chicken Parmesan

 Prep Time; 10 minutes
 Cook Time; 30 minutes
 Total Time; 40 minutes


  • 6 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 24 ounces total)
  • 1 16 ounce jar marinara sauce (I like to use a brand with no added sugar)
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella sliced
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Basil or additional fresh herbs for garnish
  • Optional: cooked pasta for serving

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Spray a large baking dish (about 9-inch by 13-inch) with cooking spray. Spread half of the marinara sauce in the bottom of the dish. Add the chicken on top of the sauce. Sprinkle chicken with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, to taste.
  3. Pour remaining sauce over chicken. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. If you are using larger chicken breasts you will need to increase the baking time to at least 30-35 minutes.
  4. Remove foil, place mozzarella slices and grated Parmesan on top of chicken.
