Herbed Chicken Parmesan (Picky Eater Style)

I consider myself pretty lucky.

I have children who aren’t that picky when it comes to food.

Well, 2 of my 3 children aren’t that picky.

My four year old is actually in the “picky” faze right now and I’m counting the days until it passes.

While I hold my breath for that,

I decided to try a version of Chicken Parmesan that he and the girls might like.

I call it Herbed Chicken Parmesan…… Picky Eater Style!

I figured anything over Colorful Bowtie Pasta for my little ones is a Homerun any night.

Usually, I will have a little bit of left overs when it comes to most meals.

This, however, had nothing!

Not a crumb!

Not even an itty bitty bowtie.

When my 4 year old cleaned his plate, I knew I had a winner!

So, if you have picky eaters, try this recipe.

Even if you don’t, you’ll love it!

AND!  It’s done with Chicken tenders, so Portion control is easy!

Recipe:  Herbed Chicken Parmesan  (Picky Eater Style) 


1/4 Cup Dry Breadcrumbs

1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Parsley

1/2 Teaspoon Dried Basil

1/4 Teaspoon Salt, Divided

1/3 Cup Grated Fresh Parmesan Cheese, Divided

1 Large Egg White, Lightly Beaten  (I use Egg Beaters)

1 lb. Chicken Breast Tenders

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 (14.5 oz) Can Tomato Sauce

2 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1/3 Cup Shredded Provolone Cheese (I folded 4 slices in half twice, then sliced very thin)



– Preheat broiler.

– Combine 2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, Breadcrumbs, Parsley, Basil, and 1/8 Teaspoon Salt in a shallow dish.

– Place Egg White (Or Egg Beaters) in another shallow dish.

– Dip each chicken tender in  Egg White, and then dredge in Breadcrumb mixture.

– Melt butter in a large Nonstick Skillet over medium high heat.  Add chicken, making sure not to over crowd the pan.  Cook 3 minutes on each side or until done.  Chicken should be golden brown.

– Transfer Chicken to a broiler pan or oven safe dish large enough to hold all of Chicken Tenders.  Set aside.

– Combine 1/8 Teaspoon Salt, Tomato Sauce, Vinegar, and Pepper in a microwave-safe bowl.

– Cover with plastic wrap, and vent on one side.

– Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.  Spoon over Chicken.  Do not discard extra sauce.

– Sprinkle evenly with remaining Parmesan Cheese and  Provolone Cheese.

– Broil 2 minutes or until cheeses melt.

– Serve over Tri Colored Bowtie Pasta, drizzled with Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper.

*I say do not discard the sauce because everyone wanted extra to go over their chicken.  🙂

Side Dish Idea:  Roasted Herbed Zucchini w/ Parmesan

– 3 Zucchini

– Extra Virgin Olive Oil

– Dried Italian Seasoning

– Grated Parmesan Cheese


– Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

– Cut off ends of zucchini.

– Cut zuchinni in half length wise.

– Drizzle a little olive oil over zucchini halves.

– Sprinkle each half with dried Italian Seasoning.

– Roast for 20 minutes.

– Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese on top of zucchini.

– Turn oven to broil.

– Allow to broil until cheese is melted and golden brown.
