We were so happy to have FOX 8's Melissa Myers visit us at FOX 8 today with her beautiful baby boy, Jett.
Melissa shared a very tasty dish with all of you -- perfect for this Sunday's Super Bowl, which airs on FOX 8.
Parmesan Chicken Fingers
2-3 lbs + boneless skinless chicken tenders (breasts trimmed to tender size), rinsed
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs or seasoned panko breadcrumbs
Dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder
4-6 tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375F.
Mix the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs into one bowl. Add a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Melt the butter in another bowl.
Dip the chicken tenders into the butter followed by the Parmesan cheese/ breadcrumb mixture.
Place in a 9X13 casserole dish.
Drizzle remaining melted butter evenly over the chicken tenders.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until cooked thoroughly, fork tender.
Serve with a side of BBQ sauce, honey mustard (my family's favorites), or you can get creative and serve with your favorite dipping sauce or wing sauce.
~HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES: Use egg whites in place of butter for Parmesan/breadcrumb coating. You should still drizzle melted butter for extra flavor. Spray nonstick spray on dish if following this method.
*adjust cheese/crumb mixture and butter according to how much chicken you desire
***This is sure to become a family favorite! Thanks to my mom for passing down this family recipe. Love you!
Go Super Bowl 51!!! The big game airs at 6:30 p.m. only on FOX 8!
