30 Minute Chicken Tenders Parmesan

Chicken Tenders Parmesan

Quick to pull together and something the kids are sure to love, this dish is a good resource to have on a busy weeknight. Slicing the chicken breasts into 3 or 4 pieces each and then heating them with jarred spaghetti sauce and topping with cheese makes for a fast and delicious meal. You can serve this with buttered noodles and a green salad.

Adapted from Every Day Food

2 large eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fine breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 basil
1/4 garlic powder
sprinkle pepper
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1 3/4 cups best quality pasta sauce ( I like Newman's Own)
4 oz (1 cup) shredded part skim mozzarella

Turn on broiler with rack set about 4 inches from the heat.

In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup Parmesan, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Crack the eggs in a separate bowl, beat slightly, and set aside. Dip the tenders first into the eggs and then roll in the breadcrumb mixture, coating all over. Place on a baking sheet.

Broil tenders for 2-4 minutes per side until golden. Remove from oven.

Pre-heat oven to 450 F. Spread 1 cup pasta sauce over the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with chicken tenders, remaining sauce, and mozzarella. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve with pasta.
