Chicken Parmish Type Casserole

I REALLY wanted to like this recipe.  I love Chicken Parmesan and this seemed like an easy way to get the same taste  with less calories.  There are 3 different recipes that are pinned to my board on Pinterest, but they are all basically the same.  This is the one I followed the closest.

Cut up the chicken into pieces and put in the bottom of the casserole.  Top with sauce.

It looks good, right?  It was surprisingly bland.  It was definitely missing something.  I had an inkling to put pasta in the bottom of the dish, but I didn’t.  Bad move.  It was really watery .  That would have been absorbed by the pasta if it was cooked to just under al dente.  Even the topping ended up getting wet after I took it out of the oven.  No one likes wet croutons unless they are freshly dressed on a salad

This was really disappointing.  It definitely didn’t have enough seasoning.  Even the Italian Seasoning that I added wasn’t included in any of the original recipes didn’t help.  I don’t think I will be making this again.  If I do, there’s gonna be a lot more seasoning added directly to the sauce before topping the chicken AND there will be pasta on the bottom.
