Skinny Chicken Parmesan Tenders

As promised recipes to use up the homemade sauce I posted yesterday. You can use tenders or cutlets. This recipe uses no bread crumbs so it’s gluten free and low carb. I served it with a salad and garlic bread. My whole family agreed it’s one of my best meals.

This meal comes together in 15 minutes.

2lbs of chicken tenders or cutlets

1/4 cup EVOO

1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning


Mozzarella cheese

Parmesan cheese


Roasted tomato sauce- see 8/24 post or any jarred sauce you have

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Mix EVOO with Italian Seasoning and a little S&P

Put chicken in a bag or bowl and pour oil mixture over chicken and toss.

Put half of chicken in a non stick skillet or pot- if you don’t have one you can wrap your handle in foil.

Cook on medium to high for 2-3 minutes per side then top each chicken piece with sauce, both cheeses, and a little butter. Then put in the oven for 4-5 minutes until fully melted. Repeat with the second batch of chicken.

Top with a little more Parmesan and basil if there is not some in your sauce.
