It doesn’t require much extra effort just a little time in the oven and the end result is so tasty and makes a nice hearty meal. It is also a great dish for meal prep, it will store well in the fridge for 3-4 days and can be frozen.

Tips and suggestions…

If whole wheat pasta is a 0PP food for you on WW then use whole wheat spaghetti to keep points low.

For the chicken, I usually cook a batch up weekly in my crockpot, I use 4-5 large chicken breasts and add in chicken broth or even water if I don’t have any broth. Usually enough to cover the chicken. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7 hours. Remove from the crockpot and shred it with a couple of forks. This will keep in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 4 days, it is great for meal prep.

Feel free to use different kinds of cheese, however with it being a chicken parmesan dish I would suggest keeping parmesan cheese in it.

Optional to top with some fresh herbs or green onion.

Leftovers will keep in the fridge in a sealed air tight container for 3-4 days. This recipe will freeze well. To reheat you can use the oven, air fryer or microwave.
