Get your sheet pans out. You will need two of them to make enough for all your people. Spray them with non stick spray or lay parchment paper down for easy clean up. We are all about easy clean up here in the Stewart household. Divide up your chicken between pans and season with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.

Pour marinara sauce over the top of all the chicken. Get it all over each piece. Sprinkle some parmesan on each. All you got is the green can aka “shakey cheese”? Use that and don’t worry about it one bit.

Top with mozzarella then pop it into a 400 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees. Take out the pan on the top shelf and move the bottom pan up to finish cooking. You absolutely could cover and freeze rather than bake at this point as well.

The trick to moist chicken is to let it rest for 5- 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven. By the time the second pan is done, you can easily serve up the first pan. By the time you finish that, the second pan is all set to serve up too. Everyone will rave over low carb marinara parmesan chicken and ask for it to be added to the meal plan! #momwin
