Chicken/ Leftovers

Chicken Parmigiana made with Chicken Tenders

Happy New Year’s!! On the menu tonight – Chicken Parmigiana!

Remember the Parmesan and Herb Chicken Tenders I made recently? Well, I had some leftover and decided to make one of my suggestions, Chicken Parmigiana.

Since I already made the chicken tenders, all I had to do for this dish was put them in the dish with a few dollops of sauce and some grated cheese. Oh my GOSH was it delicious!

I didn’t even fire up my full sized oven. I cooked the entire thing in my toaster oven. Most of my dishes are made for multiple people. This dish was for one person. That said, you could easily up the number of chicken tenders to feed however many people you are cooking for.

I hope the next time you crave chicken Parmigiana, you’ll try my recipe.

This dish assumes you have pre-cooked chicken tenders. For the best results, I'd recommend making the tenders yourself, using my recipe of course! 😉 You could also use the chicken tenders in the deli area of your market, or even frozen breaded chicken tenders. For the last two options, I'd recommend seasoning them with Italian seasoning.
