Chicken Tenders Parmesan

Another fabulous success of a recipe from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food mag. YUM!

I am not generally a big fan of parmesan chicken/etc but this recipe was nice and cheesy and with a good sauce... yum. I will definitely make this again, and soon. Love how quick and easy it was too!

salt and pepper (to taste)

2 eggs

1/2 cup finely grated parmesan

1/2 cup plain dried breadcrumbs

1.5 pounds chicken (in tenders-cut)

1 3/4 cups tomato sauce (I got the small - 8 oz I think - Jar of Rao's marinara and it was just the right amt, and so yummy since I am picky with sauce)

4 oz shredded mozzarella (approx 1 cup)

Heat broiler, rack 4 inches from heat.

Whisk eggs in a bowl, and in another bowl combine grated parmesan (I just used the pre bought shredded kind) and plain dried breadcrumbs.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the tenders in the eggs and then in the parmesan mixture to coat well. Place on rimmed baking sheet and broil until golden, 2 to 4 min per side.

Preheat the oven to 450 (it will need to cool down not heat up!). Spread 1 cup of tomato sauce inhte bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Top with the chicken tenders and then the remaining sauce and finally the mozzarella.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.

SO SO SO good!!!!
