Quinoa Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Quinoa Casserole

1 can (24 oz) spaghetti sauce
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
4 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Optional: chopped fresh parsley

Generously grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Add the spaghetti sauce, quinoa, water, garlic, and oregano, and stir slightly to combine. Slice the chicken into tenderloins, and place in the sauce. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, cheddar cheese, and Parmesan cheese. After the casserole has baked for 30 minutes, take out of the oven and stir. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb and cheese mixture. Bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until the quinoa is absorbed in the liquid and the chicken is completely cooked through. Serve & garnish with parsley if desired.
