This is another recipe that my mom learned from her mom in Sicily, she says that she used to make it all the time.  It's breaded chicken tenders with a pizza topping.  Watch our video, we always have fun in the kitchen and we show you how easy it is to make a healthy dish that you can serve with salad, rice, potatoes, whatever you like!

Buon Appetito!
