Recipe by ladycook

I'm on a mission to slenderize some of my favorite foods. (ok so that I can slenderize myself too!) This is my own adaptation of something I saw on the Food Channel recently with Juan Carlos Cruz.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 chicken breast tenders
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon locatelli cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Beat the egg and white together with the water well.
  3. Mix well the bread crumbs, cheese, and parsely.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray the surface.
  5. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, then dredge into the breadcrumb mixture so that it's well coated.
  6. Place on cookie sheet. When all the chicken pieces are coated, lightly spray with the non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes until just cooked through. (these will dry easily so try not to overcook).
