Chicken Tenders

This is about as simple as cooking can get and that is why I am posting it. I've found myself at times not knowing what to cook for dinner so I search the net for ideas. Sometimes the simplest thing is the most appealing, especially after a long day at work or whenever you just want something easy but tasty. These tenders are just that. Kids love them and they make great leftovers. What I've done with what is leftover is have them the next day on a sandwich of toasted bread, a thin layer of ranch dressing, lettuce and tomato. Very tasty and simple!

About 3 large, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup flour
1 cup plain breadcrunbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (mix with bread crumbs, if desired)
2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste

Slice chicken breasts lengthwise into 1 inch wide strips (can be larger if you prefer)
Dredge chicken strips in flour
Dip in egg (beaten, with a little water added)
Coat with breadcrumbs
Repeat (the coating is great when you repeat this....)

Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken tenders for several minutes on each side until nicely browned. Add more oil if needed. Place on plate with paper towel when done to absorb any extra oil.
