What's Cooking? Wednesday #8: Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe

As promised, I'm back this week with the recipe for Noodles and Company's copycat parmesan crusted chicken recipe.

What You Need:
-about 1 lb boneless chicken tenderloins
-egg whites from 2 eggs
-1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
-bread crumbs
-1 tsp italian seasoning
-1 tsp garlic powder

What You Do:

1. Mix the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a bowl.
2. In a shallow dish, add the two egg whites so that you can dip the chicken in it on both sides. (I don't have a picture of this since my hands were too covered in egg goo)

3. Once the chicken is coated with egg white, dip it in the Parmesan breadcrumb mixture until it is fully coated. Press the mixture into the chicken to make sure it sticks.

4. In a skillet over medium heat, add a little olive oil, and then add the chicken. Cook through until no longer pink in the center. Wait a bit before flipping it so that the parmesan crust can get more cooked/browned.

5. Serve over whatever dish you'd like! I added this to the top of my Pesto Cavatappi recipe

Sadly, I think this is going to be the last What's Cooking? Wednesday post due to the lack of interest in the link up. I'll still post recipes periodically, though, so keep an eye out for those :)

Don't forget to link up with me tomorrow for Thankful Thursday if you want to share what you're thankful for this week!
