DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375º F.
  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat. Add chicken and cook, turning as needed, until lightly browned, or about 5-6 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Add onion and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, Italian seasoning and pepper; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring as needed, until the mixture is thickened slightly, 8 - 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook ziti according to package directions. Drain and mix with ricotta cheese.
  • Pour half of tomato mix into a 13x9" baking pan, layer with ziti mixture, chicken and remaining tomato mixture. Sprinkle with the cheeses.
  • Bake until hot and bubbling and cheese is melted, 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Suggestion -- if short on time, precooked chicken strips can be used and work just fine!
