MummyCooks Chicken Parmigiana
A lovely, colourful classic Italian recipe. Your kids will love it - mine do! 

4 large, skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
75g breadcrumbs
75g Parmesan, grated
2 garlic clove, crushed
Half a jar passata
200g tin chopped tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
75g mozzarella, torn
Olive oil

Place the chicken breasts between clingfilm sheets, and bash out with a rolling pin until they are nice and thin.

Dip the chicken in the egg, then breadcrumbs, mixed with half the Parmesan. Set aside on a plate in the fridge while you make the sauce.

Heat the oil and cook the garlic for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes, passata and oregano before allowing to simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Heat your grill to high, and cook the chicken for 5 minutes each side, then remove.

Pour the tomato sauce into a shallow ovenproof dish and top with the chicken.

Scatter over the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan, and grill for 3-4 minutes until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling.

Serve with pasta, and enjoy!
