Today Recipes | Easy Chicken Breast Tenderloin Recipe – Delicious! Super Easy! And this is coming from someone who does not cook. I made about three pounds and there were no leftovers! So easy and tasty. I didn’t make the parmesano, I used the strips to make wraps with salad, cheese and ranch dressing. I’m know to mess up recipes, but this one was so straight forward. My first chicken recipe ever and I got rave reviews!  I did not use fresh thyme and rosemary (i used bottled), but it still came out great. Enjoy!
