Super-Easy Chicken Manicotti

It's time for Five Ingredients Friday, Overwhelmed with Joy is hosting this feature every friday, so if you have five ingredient recipes you want to share, just go on over to her blog and add your name to the list. :)

Here's mine for today:

Super-Easy Chicken Manicotti

1 jar (26 to 30 ounces) tomato pasta sauce (any variety)
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.

Note: Easy never tasted this good! But don�t be fooled by its ease; with its creative presentation, this is a dish that you can be proud to serve to guests.
