Trying Something Different
I was at a bit of a loss as to what I wanted to cook for dinner tonight. I picked up some chicken breast tenderloins at the grocery the other day but really hadn't decided how I was going to prepare them.

I decided to put them into a roasting pan, cover them with marinara sauce, and just bake this mess in the oven to see what happens.

I'll serve it over spaghetti along with a nice spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

I have no idea how it'll turn out but it'll be something different.

Sounds like a chicken cacciatore variant. Hope your breasts turn out good.

Thanks

I'm impressed you're such a gourmet chef !!

I make a version of this with chicken breasts and I add a little white wine and some italian diced tomatoes (straight out of the can juice and all) and bake it in the oven without the marinara. Then I serve it with Garlic Bread and a salad.

Then you cut up the leftovers and add it to spaghetti sauce for another meal.

The acid in the wine keeps the chicken nice and tender.

Guess I know what I'm having for dinner tomorrow night !!

Nah, no chef here, I just throw some stuff together and hope for the best


Your recipe sounds quite good, I may have to try that.
