1 jar (26 to 30 oz) spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup water
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 lb uncooked chicken tenders (not the breaded kind) I am subbing chicken breasts and will cut them to size
14 uncooked manicotti shells (8 oz box)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
chopped fresh basil if desired
Heat oven to 350
In a bowl mix spaghetti sauce and water. Spread about 1/3 of the sauce in an ungreased 13x9 baking dish.
Sprinkle garlic powder on chicken. Insert chicken into the uncooked manicotti shells, suffing from each end of shell to fill if necessary. Place shells on the spaghetti sauce in the baking dish. Pour remaining sauce evenly over the shells, covering completely. Cover tightly with foil.
Bake about and hour or until shells are tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Sprinkl with basil.
