Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly oil a 3-quart baking dish.

  • Cook gnocchi per package directions, but remove them from water before they are completely cooked. Drain well and set aside.

  • Whisk egg with a pinch of salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Mix together in a separate shallow bowl Italian bread crumbs, 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, salt and pepper.

  • Butterfly chicken breasts and bread them: dip each breast first into bread crumb mixture, then into egg, then into bread crumb mixture again.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook breaded chicken until golden brown and cooked through (internal temperature at least 165 degrees F), about 5 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from skillet.

  • Toss and quickly saute gnocchi in the same skillet for about 2 minutes.

  • Spread a layer of Ragu® Sauce on the bottom of a 3-quart baking dish. Spread gnocchi evenly over the sauce. Sprinkle some mozzarella and Parmigiano cheese over gnocchi.

  • Layer sliced mushrooms over the top. Spread half of the remaining sauce over the mushrooms and sprinkle some more mozzarella and Parmigiano over the top. Salt and pepper to taste.

  • Slice chicken and place pieces on top of mushrooms and cheese. Spoon the remaining sauce evenly over the top. Sprinkle with the remaining cheeses. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired.

  • Bake until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes.

we loved it although I did not have chicken thawed out I decided to use aldi's breaded chicken which i baked in my toaster oven for 15 minutes then sliced & made with our favorite sauce (not ragu). I did not have mushrooms so omitted them. It was delicious. Read More

My first time with gnocchi and I really liked the recipe but the gnocchi is very heavy. Stick to the ribs food just not quite for us. Read More

I did not have mushrooms or bread crumbs. I used crushed Tostitos scoops instead adding Italian Seasoning. This substitution was enough salt my husband who usually adds salt to all his food did not reach for the salt this time! I also purchased Gnocchi from the Dollar Store. My husband said that "it was good" twice without any prompting from me! This recipe is super easy which requires very little time. I will definitely make this again. This was served with a fresh lettuce salad and three cheese garlic bread with milk to drink. Perfect meal! Thank you! Read More

This is the third time I have made this and it is great every time! I forgot to get jarred sauce this time and I had vodka sauce in the house so I used that. I think the vodka sauce gave it a unique flavor that was equally awesome! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I have just made this once so far. The parm breading fell off the chicken because I didn't properly tend it while it was cooking. Even so it was incredibly delicious. I decided to try this recipe after wondering what gnocchi must taste like while playing Hay Day! And it didn't disappoint! Next time I'm going to prepare the chicken parm in a more easily done and traditional manner so it stays where it belongs. Read More
