If you make a lot of casserole I highly recommend you invest in some baking dishes with lids.

They make storing leftovers so much easier and are great for transporting food.

I rarely use ground chicken in recipes and I decided it was time to experiment with the underused ingredient.

I started by dumping the ground chicken, diced onions, basil pesto, Italian seasoned bread crumbs and an egg into a large mixing bowl.

I always use Classico Basil Pesto because it has amazing flavour.

I have tried other brands and haven’t been happy with them.

You could also make your own basil pesto from scratch if you prefer.

I used my hands to mix all of the ingredients together really well.

I pressed the meat mixture as evenly as possible into a greased 8 inch square dish.

I spread some Classico Sweet Basil Marinara sauce over the meat mixture.

Then I spread some plain bagels with garlic margarine before dicing them into small bite sized pieces.

Then I sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese on top.

I covered the ground chicken casserole with foil and placed it in the oven.

The foil was removed for the final fifteen minutes of cooking to allow the bagels to crisp up a bit.

After I removed the casserole from the oven I allowed it to sit for a few minutes before slicing it.
