Chicken Parmesan a la Mom
|This time I had some regular whole wheat |
bread crumbs that I mixed with the Panko.
Mostly, I just use Panko though.
10 Chicken tenders
1 c freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c Panko bread crumbs, Italian style (the Panko gives the tender coating a great texture.
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Marinara sauce of your choice. I use the sauce from Cheese Ravioli in Primavera Sauce just without all the extra veggies
shredded Italian blend cheese
Make marinara first and let it simmer for awhile allowing for flavors to meld. Leftover marinara/spaghetti sauce works great for this.
Mix Parmesan through garlic powder in a large Ziploc bag. Melt butter in a small bowl if using . Preheat oven to 400.
Dip chicken tenders in melted butter, then into the Parmesan cheese mixture.
|Finished chicken sans marinara.|
Next, turn off the oven and remove pan . Put a little shredded Italian blend cheese on top of each tender. Return to the oven for about a minute to let cheese melt.
Serve with marinara sauce. Yum for meat eaters!
I served this with green beans and fresh fruit salad.
