This is one of Jeff’s favorites…which is convenient because it’s so easy to throw together on nights when I don’t feel like cooking.
Simple chicken parmesan is my idea of perfect comfort food.
- 5 chicken tenders
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 jar marinara pasta sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Place large skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil.
Sprinkle the bread crumbs on a large plate. Beat the egg and milk in a medium sized bowl.
Dip the chicken tenders in the milk mixture and then dredge them in the breadcrumbs.
Place chicken tenders in skillet and cook until bread crumbs are brown; 3-4 minutes on each side.
Place the chicken tenders in a casserole dish, and cover with a thin sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese. Layer marinara sauce over everything. Finish with another layer of cheese! YUM!
Bake at 350 degress for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Great served with spaghetti noodles or salad.
