mMm Manicotti!

Ok seriously, stuffing chicken tenders into manicotti shells is gross! It was worth it though because this manicotti was yummilicious! I've never had manicotti before and figured I'd try something easy so I wouldnt be grumpy if it turned out bad. Well not as grumpy at least.

I found this recipe via the blog Full Bellies, Happy Kids. Y'all should visit. She has tons of great recipes! My tummy was very happy with this recipe and Ron's was too!

Easy Chicken Manicotti

1 jar (26 to 30 ounces) tomato pasta sauce (any variety) I used Ragu Onion and Garlic
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders
14 uncooked manicotti shells (8 ounces)
1 can (2 1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)

Heat oven to 350 F. Spread about one-third of the pasta sauce in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches.

Sprinkle garlic salt on chicken. Insert chicken into uncooked manicotti shells, stuffing from each end of shell to fill if necessary. Place shells on pasta sauce in dish.

Pour remaining pasta sauce evenly over shells, covering completely. Sprinkle with olives and cheese.

Cover and bake about 1 1/2 hours or until shells are tender.
