"This is a delicious casserole that we have often in the colder weather. It is so delicious and easy to whip up during the week when my schedule is so hectic. My lil guy loves it, and that is always a plus! Sometimes I prepare it ahead and then toss it in the oven when I get home from work. Voila, dinner is served!"

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour olive oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Crush garlic and add into baking dish. Mix garlic in, and evenly spread on the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle with hot pepper flakes.
Place cut up chicken into the dish.
Pour marinara sauce evenly over chicken, and top with chopped basil.
Layer with half the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. (You can also add a sprinkling of dry Italian seasoning to both cheese layers).
Top with crushed croutons (I crush them in the bag with a rolling pin first).
Top with remaining cheeses.
Bake uncovered, for 30-40 minutes. You want to make sure chicken is done, so if the top starts to brown a little too much, cover with foil.
