Easy Chicken Parmesan

This is a very easy way to make Chicken Parmesan, and have dinner on the table in approx. 30 minutes. Yes, it's that easy, and deliciously good.

8 chicken breast tenderloins
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

2 cups tomato sauce
8 oz. tomato paste
1 1/2-2 tsp. garlic powder

2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

In a medium saucepan, combine tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic powder and Italian seasoning stirring well. Heat over medium-high heat until bubbly; reduce heat to low, cover and simmer.

Beat 2 eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together. Dip the chicken pieces in beaten egg then dredge in the bread crumb cheese mixture covering well. Place chicken pieces on a cooling rack and let sit about 10 minutes (this will hep the coating adhere to the chicken).

Meanwhile heat about 2 tbls. oil in an electric fry pan or large skillet, being careful not to get it too hot. Add chicken tenderloin pieces and cook 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove and let drain on paper towels.

To serve, ladle tomato sauce over each and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Add your choice of pasta and a side salad.
