Chicken tenders on Texas toast with sauce and shirred mozzarella
1 lb. chicken tenders
8 slices of Texas toast
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1 cup Italian-style breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup marinara sauce
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper.
Set up a breading station with three bowls. In the first bowl, add the flour. In the second bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. In the third bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
Dredge each chicken tender in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, then coat it in the breadcrumb mixture.
Place the breaded chicken tenders on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through and crispy.
While the chicken tenders are baking, toast the Texas toast in a toaster or oven.
Once the chicken tenders are done, remove them from the oven and place them on a baking dish or sheet. Spoon marinara sauce over each tender, then sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
Return the chicken tenders to the oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Place a piece of Texas toast on each plate and top with a chicken tender. Spoon additional marinara sauce over the chicken if desired. Serve hot and enjoy your Chicken Tenders on Texas Toast with Sauce and Shredded Mozzarella!
