(I usually cook mine for about 30-40 minutes). add 1/4 cup white sauce and cook till slightly thickened.
  4. Flatten tenders, coat w Wondra flour & brown In a large skillet, in a little olive till nearly done. add the peppers and onions, saute till chicken is done. add the sauce. saute until everything is warmed. add roasted garlic cloves. serve over pasta.
  5. Roasted Garlic: Separate head of garlic into individual cloves still in 'paper'. toss in olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil or a small pint sized dish with a lid. bake in 350* oven for 30 minute when the garlic has cooled to the touch you should be able to squeeze it out of the 'paper' shell of the individual cloves.
