So you arrive home from work. You’re hungry. You want something home-cooked and comforting and you’re hoping it can magically appear in front of you any moment now.
Throw this quick dish together (with the help of Trader’s Joe’s).
Find a small bag of pasta in your pantry that you’ve been ignoring because it isn’t quite enough for a full meal, cook that up. In the meantime, get the oven going according to the package of frozen breaded chicken tenders from Trader Joe’s and bake them for a bit. If you’re like us, you probably have a half of a jar of some kind of pasta or marinara sauce in your fridge, so warm that up. Now put everything together. Toss the cooked pasta with some of the sauce and layer in an oven proof dish. Place chicken tenders on top, cover with additional sauce, and top with some mozzarella cheese. Put the whole dish back in the oven on broil for a few minutes. Watch it carefully…when it’s bubbly, pull it out and serve it up.
Tada! Chicken Parmesan! Top with some fresh parmigianno and a sprinkle of fresh parsley!
