Italian Chicken

Posted by Lori:

Our brother and sister-in-law on my husband's side just returned home from Italy.  They took a cooking class while they were there.  I'm really hoping she'll share some recipes and tips with me sometime about authentic Italian cooking.  But, for now, here's an Italian Chicken recipe - not authentic, but very good!

Italian Chicken

1 package frozen chicken tenders
2 cans tomatoes, Italian style
1 package spaghetti sauce mix (I used thick & zesty style)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place frozen chicken tenders in 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Pour 1 can of tomatoes over the chicken.  Sprinkle half of the spaghetti sauce mix over the chicken and tomatoes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove casserole dish and  pour remaining can of tomatoes over the chicken.  Sprinkle remaining sauce mix.  Re-cover with foil and bake until chicken is done...about 30 more minutes.  Serve chicken and juice over hot pasta.  Top with grated cheese, if desired.

Of course, you could use fresh chicken, but you may need to reduce baking time.  There might not be as much liquid left either, so you might want to heat up a jar of spaghetti sauce to serve over the top.
