I love easy, tasty recipes, and this is one of the easiest! I just give approximations, because this recipe can be adjusted, based on the number of people you're feeding (or how hungry those people are!)
- 8 frozen breaded chicken tenders (I use Tyson)
- 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- Cook chicken tenders, as directed on package, in a baking dish.
- When crispy, top with desired amount of spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese; bake until hot and bubbly.
I second that motion. I really love the chicken strips idea. I think it's like a southern fried crispy chicken strip I used the first time I tried this. My family had requested chicken parmesan which I had never even eaten before so I had no idea what they wanted. After looking over several recipies on Recipezaar and asking my mother-in-law I was still confused. I couldn't figure out which order to make the dish in was it sauce on top of chicken covered with cheese or chicken on top of sauce covered with cheese so I gave up and decided not to make it from scratch the first time so I could experiment with placement. I think I put the cheese on top of the chicken strips while they were baking and then put the chicken on top of the sauce. I loved it so much I never looked at another recipe. I happened to stumble across this one today looking for quick simple meals and had to rate it as a wonderful idea since I have done it myself on many occasions. I even make it for myself as a nice lunch when we have leftover spaghetti since I almost always have some kind of chicken strips in the freezer.
