Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Tenders


I've been eyeing up this recipe in Quick Fix Meals by Robin Miller for awhile now and I finally had all the ingredients to make it. I wish I would have made it sooner! The chicken is so tender and moist.

1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt, divided
3/4 tsp black pepper, divided
2 chicken breasts, cut into tenders
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp water
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, fresh grated
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp each dried thyme and oregano

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

In a shallow dish, combine the flour and 1/2 tsp each of the salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the mixture and turn to coat evenly and completely.

Whisk together the eggs and water in a seperate shallow dish.

In a third shallow dish or plast bag, combine the parmesan, oats, garlic powder, herbs, salt and pepper.

Dip the flour coated chicken into the eggs, then transfer to the parmesan mixture. Turn until well coated. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Spray the tops with cooking spray and bake until crust is golden brown and chicken is cooked through, about 20-25 minutes.
