Jim's Welcome Home Party

When Jim came home after a 40 day trip to Asia I wanted to do something special for him, so I decided to throw a welcome home party. We mainly had frozen apps, but I made a few snacks as well.

One of those things was chicken fingers. I've never found a homemade chicken finger recipe that I actually like better than fast food chicken nuggets until now. The cheese added into this makes them so good. And they're really quick and easy too!

Parmesean Crusted Chicken Tenders
serves 4

1/4c all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/2c finely shredded parmesean cheese
1c coarse dry breadcrumbs
1lb chicken tenders
1T Italian seasoning
1t garlic powder
1/4t salt
1c marinara sauce, heated

Preheat oven to 450.
Place flour in one dish. Lightly beat eggs in another dish. Combine parmesean cheese and breadcrumbs in a third dish.
Toss chicken tenders with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt in a medium bowl. Coat in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then coat in breadcrumb mixture.
Place on baking sheet and coat top with cooking spray. Bake 10 minutes. Turn and coat other side with cooking spray. Bake about 10 more minutes.
Serve with warm marinara sauce.

And the even tastier dessert from that party is coming soon...
