Mozzarella Marinara Chicken
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp Italian seasoning
salt & pepper to taste
1 TBSP olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of your favorite Marinara sauce
*chopped fresh basil (optional)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven broiler.
Combine seasonings in a dish and heat olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Season both sides of chicken breasts with seasoning mixture.
Add chicken to the pan and sear until golden - about 3 minutes each side.
If your skillet is oven safe, add marinara to pan and top with mozzarella & chopped basil. If not, pour marinara into a baking dish, add chicken and top with mozzarella and basil.
Broil until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
Garnish with parmesan. Serve over pasta, rice or zoodles!
