“Use you own favorite meatless marinara sauce for this, I use my Kittencal's Marinara Pasta Sauce (Vegetarian) --- if you are serving the chicken with pasta you may want to keep some extra sauce warm on top of the stove --- to save some time the chicken may be made up to step#9 cooled and refrigerated until ready to continue with the recipe which makes this the perfect dish to serve at a dinner party :)”
