This was one of those really good surprise meals. So easy yet so tasty. Here's what I used: 1.5 cups italian Panko crumbs, 2 T fresh shredded parmesan, 1 egg, 2 T. flour, 2 cups spagetti sauce and 3 T shredded mozzerella. I dredged my 6 chicken tenders in the flour and then into the egg. Mixed the parmesan and panko together and then dredged the egg soaked tenders, patting the breading on pretty thick. I did spray the baking sheet and the top of the tenders with Canola oil spray. I baked for about 16 minutes at 375 and then turned the broiler on to really crisp up the top. It was a hit for my picky husband and me so it will definately go into my rotation. Healthy too!

This was good, although I think with a little doctoring it could be great. I made it with breadcrumbs instead of crushed croutons. Next time I will add some croutons or some additional seasoning because it could have used a little more kick. The chicken was tender though. I would also recommend pounding the chicken to flatten it first, that way you get more of the crispy coating in each bite. It browned nicely and was indeed done in 20 minutes.

My husband's stomach is probably giving this 5 stars. He said it was better than Olive Garden's! I used cheap ingrdients froma local store and it still came out fabulous. I decided to add a little Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese to my croutons and I made sure to put on a lot of sauce and cheese. This recipe is easy to adapt for a dinner for two. Definitely will be making again.

Wow!! I made this for the first time last night. Thing is...I made it for 30 people. They raved about it. The only alteration to the recipe is that I used Italian Parmasan Bread Crumbs already crushed. Many asked for the recipe. My mom said it was better than Olive Garden.

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I used Italian bread crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese instead of croutons. I baked for about 18 minutes and then spooned on some spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese. I returned to the oven until the cheese melted. The chicken was crispy and had a good flavor. A quick and easy meal!

I cooked the breaded chicken on a metal cooling rake on top of the cookie sheet lined with foil. It was crispy. My cooking time was longer probably because of the thickness of the chicken. Next time I will flaten the chicken. I will make again soon. Yummy!

This was GREAT! I also added Parmesan cheese to the crushed croutons. I also put in a little garlic, Italian spices, and a touch of salt. I made it two days in a row!!

Excellent!! I did put on the sauce and cheese and put it back in for 7 minutes like some other comments. This will be made many more times.
