A quick and easy way to make Baked Chicken Parmesan using a few ingredients.


  • 1 bag chicken tenders (defrosted)
  • 1 bottle RAGÚ Homestyle Pasta Sauce (choose your favorite flavor)
  • 1 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups Pepper Jack or Mozzarella
  • cooking spray


If serving chicken over pasta, buy an additional bottle of pasta sauce.


Step 1
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and generously spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
Step 2
Pat chicken tenders with a paper towel to remove excess water.
Step 3
Add seasoned breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese to a shallow bowl and mix together. In a separate bowl, add 1 cup of pasta sauce. Dip chicken tenders into the pasta sauce and coat both sides well. Then dip in the breadcrumb mixture. Place coated tenders onto the foil lined pan. Repeat until all the tenders are coated. Discard any sauce used for dipping the chicken in.
Step 4
Generously spray the coated chicken with cooking spray. Place pan in oven and baked for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
Step 5
Add a pepper jack cheese and a heaping spoonful of bottle pasta sauce onto each chicken. Bake for another 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is warm.
