Baked Pizza Chicken Casserole

I am loving all of these amazing bakes on social media and while they look so decadent and delicious, but I know they are super unhealthy, especially ones with gooey Velveeta cheese. After seeing a pizza bake the other day, I decided there had to be a just as healthy version out there that we could all enjoy!

Healthy Pizza Chicken Casserole Bake

Ingredients:

  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 1/2 lb raw cheddar or mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 tbsp basil

  • 1/2 tbsp garlic

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Spread half of the pizza sauce over the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.

  3. Place one flat layer of the chicken thighs in the pizza sauce.

  4. Use the rest of the pizza sauce to cover the chicken thighs.

  5. Evenly cover the chicken thighs with the cheese.

  6. In a small bowl mix together oregano, basil, and garlic.

  7. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over top of the cheese.

  8. Press the pepper slices into the cheese.

  9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.

  10. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.

  11. Remove the foil and then finish cooking the chick until it hits at least 165 F on a thermometer and then cheese is bubbling.

This is the perfect family meal or pot luck dish to pass. The amazing pizza taste will really make this dish a favorite. This pairs well with roasted green veggies.
