Breaded chicken made with fresh breadcrumbs, herbs and Parmesan cheese is so amazing. It turns out perfectly golden and crisp but is still so moist on the inside. Crispy veggies, tossed with a light sauce and served over pasta – pass me a plate!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Place a pot of water to boil and cook Spaghetti (8 ounce) according to the package instructions, or however you like to eat it. When you’re draining the pasta, reserve some of the pasta water, which is salty and starchy and is perfect to thin out the sauce, if it needs it at the end.
Step 2
flatten out the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (4) just so that they are an even thickness. You can also use chicken breast instead, in which case cut them into strips or 1 1/2 inch pieces.
Step 3
Season the chicken on both sides with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste).
Step 4
Make the seasoned breadcrumbs by cutting the Bread (4 slice) into cubes and then pulsing in the food processor to make fine crumbs.
Step 5
Add the rest of the breadcrumb ingredients – Onion Powder (1 teaspoon), Garlic Powder (1 teaspoon), Dried Mixed Herbs (1/2 teaspoon), Fresh Parsley (1 tablespoon), and Parmesan Cheese (1/3 cup). Mix until evenly combined.
Step 6
Create a coating station by placing the flour, Egg (2), and the seasoned breadcrumbs in shallow plates/bowls with sides.
Step 7
Dredge the seasoned chicken in the All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup) first, then in the beaten eggs and lastly in the breadcrumbs. Use your hands to firmly press the breadcrumbs into the chicken so it adheres well. Dredge the chicken in the breadcrumbs a few times, so that all the chicken is well covered in the crumbs.
Step 8
Heat 1 1/2 – 2 Tablespoons of oil in a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the chicken tenders and cook until the chicken is golden brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.
Step 9
Cook the chicken in batches, until it’s all cooked. Place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain off the excess oil.
Step 10
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, adding about a tablespoon of Oil (1 tablespoon) to it. When the oil is hot, add the Red Onion (1), season with salt and ground black pepper and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Step 11
Add the Red Bell Pepper (1) and season with salt and pepper. Cook for another 2-4 minutes.
Step 12
Scrape some of the vegetables from the center of the skillet and add the Garlic (4 clove). If the skillet is dry, add a small drizzle of olive oil to the garlic, and sauté for 30 seconds to a minute.
Step 13
Add the Zucchini (2) and season again with salt and pepper. To prevent the zucchini from becoming too watery and mushy, only cook it for about a minute, just enough to mix it in with the rest of the vegetables.
Step 14
Pour in the White Wine (1/4 cup) and the Chicken Broth (1/2 cup) into the skillet and turn up the heat to high, bring it to a boil, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. If you’re not using a large skillet, take out the vegetables and place them into another bowl so they don’t overcook first, before adding the broth and wine to the skillet. If the skillet is too small, the sauce won’t have as much of a chance to reduce, so this is an important step.
Step 15
Cook for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce reduces. Add the Heavy Cream (1/4 cup) and the Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup), whisking to combine.
Step 16
Add the vegetables and the sauce along with the Tomato (1) and Fresh Herbs (1 tablespoon) to the cooked pasta and mix to combine. If you need to thin it out more, add some of the reserved pasta water.
Step 17
Serve with the breaded chicken tenders. You can add more parmesan cheese to each plate and garnish with more fresh herbs.
