- 3/4 oz reduced fat parmesan cheese, finely grated (about 1/4 cup)

Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 35mins
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Combine bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder in a small, shallow bowl. Whip egg whites until foamy and place in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken first into egg whites and then into bread crumb mixture to coat thoroughly. (Note: You may use boneless, skinless chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts, if desired.)
Place chicken tenders on prepared pan and bake until crispy, about 25 minutes. Serve chicken with warmed sauce. Yields about 6 chicken tenders and ¼ cup of sauce per serving.
