Chicken Parmesan Sliders

This is a wonderful and easy weekend lunch. I’ve been craving some Chicken Parmesan but I knew that I had a whole night of cooking ahead of me. I was working on a cake (that is still in progress). I’m hoping to share it with you, but only if it comes out good. 
So, I made these Chicken Parmesan Sliders on a stove top and it only took me about 20 minutes. Delicious lunch and practically effortless…win-win!

(I’m sorry, I completely forgot to take the process pictures. Forgive me?)

4 chicken tenders (1 tender per slider)
1 cup of Italian bread crumbs
1 egg
1 tbs Parmesan cheese
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup Marinara sauce
4 mini hamburger buns
1/4 cup Mozzarella cheese
4-5 fresh basil leaves

1. Beat the egg with a little salt and pepper in one shallow bowl.
2. Combine Italian bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well.
3. Bread the chicken tenders: dip the tenders first into bread crumb mixture. then into egg, then into bread crumb mixture again.
4. Cook the breaded tenders on medium heat for about 15 minutes, until completely done.
5. Lower the heat to medium-low. Add the Marinara sauce on top of chicken tenders. Cover and cook for about 2 more minutes.
6. Cut the chicken tenders in half and place them on the buns. Top with some Mozzarella cheese and basil leaves.

  16. Maureen, Milwaukee says:

    These look really great – had to come to your site from Serious Eats site where the pic was posted and read the recipe! Can you clarify: did you use oil in the pan? What size pan did you use? Thanks!

  17. WillCookForSmiles says:

    Of course! I used a medium size pan and I had double the about (I made 8 sliders). Since breaded tenders tend to soak up oil, I used about 2 tbs of olive oil.

  18. WillCookForSmiles says:

    Awww, I hope so! Thank you!

  3. […] Chicken Parmesan Sliders by Will Cook For Smiles I love chicken parmesan, and this look super tasty. It’s different from classic chicken parmesan, which is kind of fun. I could definitely see serving these at a party or something. Tomato Tortellini Soup by Six Sisters Stuff Isn’t everything from Six Sisters Stuff awesome? Yesterday, I attended the Build Your Blog Conference, and I’m amazed by this group of sisters. This soup looks yummy, and pretty easy. I love tortellini too, so it’s a win-win!
