An Excellent Italian Feast

Parma Rosa Chicken
 Ingredients:
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning 
  • 1 pkg. Knorr Parma Rosa Pasta Sauce Mix 
  • 1 T. oil 
  • 1 ¼ cups evaporated skim milk 
  • 1 T. butter 
  • Crumbled Feta cheese 
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese 
  • Cooked Ziti or other pasta
Directions:
  1. Slice chicken into ½-inch slices, sprinkle with salt and pepper and Italian seasoning then brown in oil.
  2. Remove to a casserole dish. Follow the directions on the Parma Rosa package using the milk and butter to make the sauce.
  3. Pour half of sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with cheeses. Add the rest of the sauce, cover and bake at 375-degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve over pasta. 

If you can't find the Knorr Parma Rosa Chicken seasoning, you can just make your own. This is how Russell and I made ours:

Ingredients:
  • 1 14oz can Italian style diced tomatoes or reg diced tomatoes, drained.
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. basil and oregano
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 c. cream
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
Directions:
  1. Put ingredients in a non stick sauce pan, stir ingredients together.
  2. Turn stove to medium heat until it comes to a boil. Once boiling, turn to low and simmer for about 10-12 mins.stirring often. 
  3. Turn it off, put a lid on it and let it sit until everything else is ready.
We found a few different recipes for this online. We took a basic one and tweaked it to fit our needs. It turned out SO good!
