Just another WordPress.com weblog

I feel like I’ve made this before, but I figured I’d do a post on it this time. I had to use dried herbs this time, but I think fresh makes it just a tiny bit better. I used my favorite buttermilk brine from Kittencal and my breading was adapted from a Racheal Ray recipe for chicken tenders. I added mozzarella and parmesan to the top and broiled, then served with a really good marinara sauce. Tyler Florence has a really good recipe for chicken parmesan that I looked at also.
