And the Yellow Rose Apron Goes To....

Chloe Elizabeth!

And by the looks of things, she enjoys cooking. Right on! Chloe, send me an e-mail w/ your address & I'll get that off to you soon. Thanks for all the comments. I wish that I could send you all a little happy something in the mail. Since I can't afford that.....I'll give you a yummy recipe that we had last week. This one is from Everyday Food Magazine. It came together really quick & was very yummy.

Chicken Tenders Parmesan w/ Penne & Broccoli

2 large eggs
3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
1/2 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
1-1/2 lbs. chicken tenders
1-3/4 cup tomato sauce (homemade or store bought)
4 oz. part-skim mozzarella, shredded (about 1 cup)
8 oz. penne rigate or other short pasta
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 tbsp. olive oil

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Heat broiler, w/ rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs. In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Season chicken w/ salt & pepper. Dip tenders in egg, then in Parmesan mixture; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until golden, 2-4 minutes per side.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread 1 cup tomato sauce in bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Then top w/ chicken, remaining 3/4 cup sauce, & finally mozzarella. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in boiling water until al dente, according to package directions, adding broccoli for final 30 seconds. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water; drain pasta & broccoli, and return to pot. Add oil & remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Toss, gradually adding some reserved pasta water until pasta is lightly coated.

***If anybody really wants a yellow rose half apron, please e-mail me. I can make you one & set up a reserved listing on etsy. They'd be $15 plus shipping.
