This is a great way to mix two favorite Italian dishes into one! And if you like more chicken, cheese or sauce...go for it! I like to mix it together before pouring it into the baking dish. It's a really tasty meal!

1Boil ziti until al dente; set aside.
2Preheat oven to 350'F.
3Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper into plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix egg and milk.
4Cut chicken tenders into bite-size cubes. Dip chicken cubes in egg/milk mixture, a few at a time. Place in plastic bag with bread crumb mixture and gently shake until covered.
5Heat olive oil over medium heat. Pan fry chicken pieces until browned, smaller pieces take less time.

When chicken is done, remove from heat and let sit on a paper towel.
