Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place garlic croutons in a plastic bag and beat with a meat hammer or heavy object until they've been crushed into smaller pieces. Do not beat into tiny breadcrumbs.
In a 9x13 glass baking dish, drizzle the olive oil. Add the chicken tenders, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; stir well to coat the chicken pieces with the oil and spices. Spread the fresh basil on top of the chicken.
Pour the pasta sauce on top of the chicken, distributing evenly. Slide into the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. Remove but do not turn off oven.
Spread half the mozzarella and parmesan evenly over the sauce. Next sprinkle all of the crushed croutons onto the sauce. Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining of the two cheeses.
Return the pan to the oven for another 25 to 30 minutes. Casserole is done when all of the cheese is well melted. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting into squares or spooning onto plates.
To reheat: Add a bit more sauce and cheese on top. Place in a small casserole and cover with a lit or foil. Reheat at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
