  • 4 medium chicken breasts skinless & boneless
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 jar of pasta sauce
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese you can also use shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 lb cooked fettuccine pasta


  • Preheat oven to 180 C / 356 F.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder and lemon juice. Set aside. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and then add the chicken breasts. Cook on both sides until browned and cooked through. This will take about 3-4 minutes on each side but it also depends on the thickness of the chicken breasts.
  • In a baking dish, spread the pasta sauce so that it covers the base of the dish and then place the cooked chicken breasts on top. Top the chicken breasts with the mozzarella cheese slices. Place the baking dish into the oven for about 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. You may turn on the broiler to get a deeper golden brown color on the cheese.
  • Serve over the cooked fettuccine pasta.
