12 Chicken Tenders (I cut up 2 chicken breasts)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
1 cup Marinara Sauce
Basil, dried or fresh
1 c shredded cheese (I used Cheddar and Mozarella)
Oil for cooking
Mix up your parmesan and breadcrumbs together in a shallow bowl. Mix up the one egg in a separate bowl. Dip the chicken into the egg, and then cover with the bread crumb mixture and cook in a pan for about 3 minutes on each side. After chicken is cooked, place in the bottom of a baking pan. Sprinkle with basil (or place basil leaves on top) Spoon the cup of marinara sauce over the chicken and sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Bake for 10 minutes at 375
