This was one of those really good surprise meals. So easy yet so tasty. Here's what I used: 1.5 cups italian Panko crumbs, 2 T fresh shredded parmesan, 1 egg, 2 T. flour, 2 cups spagetti sauce and 3 T shredded mozzerella. I dredged my 6 chicken tenders in the flour and then into the egg. Mixed the parmesan and panko together and then dredged the egg soaked tenders, patting the breading on pretty thick. I did spray the baking sheet and the top of the tenders with Canola oil spray. I baked for about 16 minutes at 375 and then turned the broiler on to really crisp up the top. It was a hit for my picky husband and me so it will definately go into my rotation. Healthy too!
My husband's stomach is probably giving this 5 stars. He said it was better than Olive Garden's! I used cheap ingrdients froma local store and it still came out fabulous. I decided to add a little Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to my croutons and I made sure to put on a lot of sauce and cheese. This recipe is easy to adapt for a dinner for two. Definitely will be making again.
Wow!! I made this for the first time last night. Thing is...I made it for 30 people. They raved about it. The only alteration to the recipe is that I used Italian Parmasan Bread Crumbs already crushed. Many asked for the recipe. My mom said it was better than Olive Garden.
