Recipe: Herbed Chicken Parmesan

1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs (I used Panko breadcrumbs, usually found in the ethnic section of your grocery store)
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 pound chicken breast tenders
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups tomato-basil pasta sauce
2 teaspoons balsalmic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded provolone cheese (I used sliced provolone and used enough cheese to cover the top of each chicken tender)

Preheat broiler.

Combine 2 tablespoons of Parmesan, breadcrumbs, parsley, basil, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a shallow dish.

Place egg white in a shallow dish.

Dip each chicken tender in egg white; dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Set aside.

Combine 1/8 teaspoon salt, pasta sauce, vinegar, and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl.

Cover with plastic wrap; vent.

Microwave sauce mixture on HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Pour the sauce over chicken in pan.

Sprinkle evenly with the remaining Parmesan and provolone cheese.

Wrap handle of pan with foil, and broil 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Makes 4 servings
