Parmesan chicken tenders with marinara dipping sauce
½ cup(s), Italian-style
Reduced fat parmesan cheese
¾ oz, finely grated (about 1/4 cup)
Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)
1 pound(s), cut into 24 thin strips
Home made marinara sauce
1 cup(s), heated
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
- Combine bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder in a small, shallow bowl. Whip egg whites until foamy and place in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken first into egg whites and then into bread crumb mixture to coat thoroughly. (Note: You may use boneless, skinless chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts, if desired.)
- Place chicken tenders on prepared pan and bake until crispy, about 25 minutes. Serve chicken with warmed sauce. Yields about 6 chicken tenders and 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.
