Baked Ricotta Chicken

This is a super easy, quick, and delicious dinner: Baked Ricotta Chicken. You can use store bought red sauce but we had some homemade sauce in the freezer so that made it extra yummy. The ricotta cheese is mixed with olive oil, parmesan, oregano, salt, and pepper. Simple: brown the chicken, set it aside. Layer sauce, chicken, sauce, ricotta, panko in a baking dish and bake until chicken is cooked through (160 degrees).
The chicken was juicy. There was just enough sauce and cheese. Not too much, not too little. The panko added a nice bit of toasty crunch. We ate our ricotta chicken with a side salad. This is definitely a make again dinner. It's so much easier to layer these ingredients than to stuff the chicken breasts with the ricotta mixture.
