C is for Chicken in Pyjamas for The Kids Cook Monday

Chicken Parmigiana/Chicken in Pyjamas.  Chicken Parmigiana is a bit of a mouthful for kids to say so somewhere along the line in our household it became Chicken in Pyjamas and the name has stuck.

Bear and Bee both like crumbed chicken strips and this has been my attempt to get them to eat something more adventurous.  It still has the tender chicken, crunchy breadcrumbs, tomato sauce and gooey cheese - just presented in a different way.  In the interests of time and ease of preparation we use a bottled pasta sauce.  You can certainly use a homemade pasta sauce instead if you have some handy.  This is also a great recipe is you have more than one child helping in the kitchen as there is plenty to do crumbing the chicken fillets.
