Chicken Tenderloins and Garlic Pasta Recipe

First, gather all of your ingredients so everything is handy as you prepare the dish.

Prepare one package of Angel Hair pasta according to package directions, and set aside to cool.

On some wax paper, spread out some flour to dredge the chicken in. Next to that, scramble some eggs in a bowl that is large enough to dip the chicken tenders in. Next to that, have a third bowl with your Parmesan Cheese and Bread Crumbs mixed together.

Take the chicken and dredge it in the flour, then egg mixture, then flour again, then breadcrumbs, and set to the side until all tenderloins are covered.

Then add to the hot EVOO pan and cook on each side until done. *I like to cook mine slowly and thoroughly, so I turn the heat down to med-high and cook about 5-6 mins on each side. I think it makes it more tender and retains the flavor, and we don’t take any chances around here with under cooked chicken!*

While the chicken is cooking, take another sauce pan and add some EVOO and your minced garlic. When it is hot, add the pasta and stir until well coated with EVOO and garlic. *I actually prefer to make this with day old pasta, I think it cooks better. So, if we have spaghetti one day, I will make extra angel hair, and put it in the fridge over night, and that is one less step the next day when I make this!*
