Cheesy chicken
Rather than putting the cheese in the chicken, this recipe melts it on top.

2 chicken breasts

Salt and pepper, to season

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp milk

115g breadcrumbs

220g tomato sauce

120g mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Place your chicken onto a clean surface and season with the salt and pepper on both sides.

In a small bowl, beat your eggs and milk together. Pour the breadcrumbs into another bowl.

Dip chicken into the bowl with the egg and milk making sure it is fully coated. Next, roll it in the breadcrumbs.

Place on the baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked through.

When it is cooked, remove from the oven and top with a spoonful of the tomato sauce.

Sprinkle the cheese on top and return to the oven. Cook for another 5 minutes until the cheese had melted.
