  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in vermicelli pasta and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • While Chicken Strips and vermicelli are cooking, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute garlic and onion for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and heat for an additional 5 minutes. Stir in diced tomatoes and sauce; bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir in tomato paste, salt, pepper, and basil and continue to heat for 10 minutes.

  • When Crispy Chicken Strips are cooked, remove from oven and leave on the same baking sheet. Place 1 slice of mozzarella cheese on each Chicken Strip and cover with 1/4 cup of the basil tomato sauce. Return to the oven and heat for 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve over drained vermicelli.

8.26.18 Made the sauce in the morning before heading out to do yard work and just reheated for dinner making this an extremely easy meal in the evening. I did add some red pepper flakes and a little red wine to the sauce and had to use a can of basil oregano and garlic canned tomatoes (what was on hand need to buy canned tomatoes) otherwise followed the recipe. This is the first time that I ve ever bought frozen cooked chicken and it actually was pretty tasty. Honestly although not difficult I doubt that I ll make the sauce again as I m not convinced it was worth the effort. You can buy a jar of good-quality marinara sauce that measures up pretty well doing nothing more than seasoning to suit your taste and at the end of a busy day it would be a much simpler way to enjoy this tasty crispy chicken. It was a nice dinner enjoyed with a simple salad and hot baguette. Read More

This was a nice balance of convenience and homemade. Great for a busy weeknight! The only one thing I would change next time would be to blend the diced tomatoes. Great recipe and one I will make again! Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. The sauce was so tasty until I added the salt. Next time I make this I will reduce the amount of salt. Otherwise it's a great recipe. Read More

Really nice balance of convenience (breaded chicken) and homemade (sauce). Quick and easy dinner option perfect for busy nights. Made the recipe as written except didn't have fresh roma tomatoes on hand so added another can of chopped tomatoes to substitute. I liked the crunch the breaded chicken gave to the dish. Giving this 4 stars because it's quick easy and delicious but nothing spectacular. Will likely make again. Read More

I rarely use precooked meat but this turned out very well. The sauce was fresh tasting and because I didn't need 8 servings I used half the sauce for an accompanying eggplant parmesan. The chicken was a little spicier than I would have wanted for a chicken parmesan but everyone enjoyed it. I love the crispy exterior and plan to try it out in another recipe. Read More
