Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts Skinless
  • 50 g Parmesan Cheese
  • 120 g Breadcrumbs
  • 100 g Plain Flour
  • 2 large Eggs Beaten
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper To taste
  • Oil For frying

For the Tomato Sauce:

  • 400 g Tomatoes Chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 tsp Oregano Dried
  • 1 tsp Basil Dried
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan)/Gas mark 6.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in a second shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
  • Dip each chicken breast in the flour, then in the egg, and finally in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to coat it well.
  • Heat the oil for shallow frying in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and set aside.
  • In a separate pan, heat up the olive oil and add the minced garlic, sauté for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, oregano, basil, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  • Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Place the chicken breasts on top of the sauce, and spoon more sauce over the chicken. Top with grated mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve with spaghetti or your favourite pasta. Enjoy!
