Quick and Easy Chicken Parmesan

Marash Girl went to dinner last night, to an elegant dinner prepared by her daughter in 1/2 hour, and you, too, can do the same.  Marash Girl will share the recipe with you ONLY if you promise to invite her to dinner when you prepare this quick and delicious meal.
Here's the recipe as created by Marash Girl's daughter, Nisha.  Really an adaptation of Chicken Parmesan with none of the fuss or muss!
For a generous meal for two . . .

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Beat one or two eggs. Set aside.  Place bread crumbs (home made or purchased) in another flat bowl.
Dip chicken tenders first into beaten egg, then into bread crumbs so that both sides are covered with the crumbs.
Place chicken tenders on lightly greasedPyrex glass tray or baking dish.. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove from oven.  Cover the chicken tenders first with your favorite spaghetti sauce (she used tomato basil) and then with grated cheese (she used a good cheddar but any meltable cheese will do).   Bake for another 10 minutes.

While chicken is baking, saute a combination of frenched green beens and tiny pieces of broccolli (frozen or fresh). 

Voila.  A meal to live for!  Thank you, Nisha!


  1. Thanks for the shout out Marash Girl! Also, a tip for the veggies: use a good olive oil and add plenty of kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper for optimal flavor!

  2. Sounds good. I'll try it. I've been doing the first part with egg and bread crumbs for years with pork tenderloin and fish. I'll try it this way no. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year '12
