Delizioso Chicken Parmigiana

If you were to ask us, what our favourite cuisine was, we’d both most probably name every single type of cuisine known to man (thats a true foodie you see 🙂 ).

Crazily enough one cuisine I am fond of is Italian (as well as middle eastern, turkish, Mexican, Thai…to name but a few). This particular dish is an Italian-American favourite, and mine!

So easy to prepare you get a few of your favourites in one dish; chicken, cheese & rich tomato sauce. Serve with either bread, potatoes, brocolli or chunky chips, it’s quite a filling meal, one breast per person will do nicely! cut up in little pieces at service makes it alot easier for the kiddies to enjoy too!

Method

-Place the chicken breasts between cling film sheets and bash out with a mallet or rolling pin until they are half their initial thickness.

-Mix breadcrumbs with half the parmesan, dip each breast in egg then the breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate in the fridge, as its time to make the rich tomato sauce.

-Heat oil and cook garlic for 1 min, then pour in passata, tomato paste and oregano. Season with Salt & Pepper and simmer for 5-10 mins.

-Heat oil in another pan and shallow fry the chicken breasts till its golden and cooked about 3mins each side, then remove.

-Pour 3/4 of the tomato sauce into a shallow ovenproof dish and top with the chicken.

-Scatter over the remaining sauce, then the mozzarella and then the remaining Parmesan and grill for 3-4 mins until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling. Serve with your favourite veggies or carbs or both!
