Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

A complete chicken and pasta dinner prepared in just one skillet—no colander needed. Boneless chicken breasts are topped with crushed garlic croutons as a clever way to avoid the breading and frying step in traditional Chicken Parmesan.


  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans Del Monte® No Salt Added Diced Tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) can Del Monte® Tomato Sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte® No Salt Added Cut Green Beans, drained
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano (or 2 fresh oregano), divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces dry rotini pasta (3 cups)
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed garlic croutons
