Parmesan Chicken Breasts

"People can't believe it when I tell them how little time it takes to fix this delicious chicken," reports Mollie Hall of San Ramon, California. "It's very moist inside and so pretty to serve with its lovely basil-flecked coating."

    Have made this ever since it was published in QC. I usually smush the egg and water together in a gallon ziplok bag and place chicken tenders in the bag to coat. Most of the time I use equal amounts of bread crumbs and Parmesan. Delicious, a real hit with my kids.

    This was a wonderful meal!!! My children all loved it. The chicken was moist, full of flavor, & the crust stayed on great! Even IThough it was cooked in a skillet, you could cut it with a fork as if it had been in a slow cooker all day. This is a keeper!
