This was delicious and a big hit with my chicken lovin' daughter. I only made the chicken tenders because I had some leftover spaghetti sauce to serve as a dipping sauce. Next time I'll try the sauce as well. They went together easily and quickly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Arrange 3 shallow bowls on the counter; fill one with the flour, one with the eggs, and one with a mixture of the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic, lemon zest, and parsley.
  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper; coat each first in the flour, then in the egg, and finally in the bread crumb mixture; set the coated pieces on a baking sheet.
  3. Place a large pan over medium heat with the olive oil.
  4. Cook the chicken in 2 batches, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 5-6 minutes.
  5. While the chicken bites are cooking, place a small pot over medium heat with the crushed tomatoes and bring up to a bubble.
  6. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the pesto.
  7. Serve the chicken bites with the tomato-pesto sauce alongside.
