HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN PARMESAN WITH FROZEN BREADED CHICKEN TENDERS?
This recipe really is quite easy. Prepare chicken tenders according to package, and boil spaghetti noodles as directed. Pour some sauce on the tenders and cover with cheese. Melt this in the oven and then layer pasta, sauce and chicken. Easy as that!!
My family loves chicken Parmesan (who doesn’t?!), but it is such a time-consuming dish! This recipe tastes just like a home-cooked meal and it comes together in a flash.
Start with some frozen chicken tenders. So tasty, and already pre-cooked! They just need to be heated up in the oven.
While the chicken strips are heating, boil up some pasta. When the chicken strips are nearly done (about two minutes left on the timer) pull them out and top them with pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Pop ’em back in the oven and set to high broil for about a minute. Keep an eye on them. The idea is to melt the cheese to perfection…
You definitely want to bake them on parchment paper, so you can easily transfer all that baked cheesy goodness to your serving dish. I love a good ceramic baking dish. They are great for function and if you are entertaining they look great!
Add spaghetti and more pasta sauce, and that’s it! Perfect if you’re looking for chicken recipes with little ingredients.
WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH THE CHICKEN PARMESAN?
We serve with a salad or bread sticks, and pass Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese at the table. Your family will devour it. It’s a deliciously filling meal, and perfect for busy back-to-school season. So simple and so delicious! And kid-approved, I assure you.
