      A filling dinner that’s quick and easy is a must at our house. We tend to come home HUNGRY at the end of the day and usually tired too. So a pile of pasta with chicken and plenty of cheese like this comforting baked chicken Parmesan pasta meal is a welcome sight for famished eyes!

      I like to cook a ton of chicken breasts at once. While I’m doing it, I might as well go for the gusto, right?

I think so! Sometimes I do it in the slow cooker, other times I cook a ton of chicken pressure cooker. I just add a bit of water and a little chicken base and let them do their thing.

After the chicken is cooked to tender perfection, it can be chopped or shredded and added to any number of things. Add lime and Mexican seasonings and you have the perfect filling for enchiladas or tacos.  Throw it in some soupstewegg noodles or white chicken chili!

I like your idea of precooking the breasts in the slow cooker. My days are to long anymore for chicken to survive in the slow cooker, but precooking it on the weekends would be a huge help!

I love that you called this the fill-em-up dinner. Sometimes that is just what we need - something to fill up that empty spot! This Chicken Parm and Pasta Bake really sounds good. I believe that it will be a new staple here.
