Chicken Parmigiana

parma

Chicken Parma is a pub classic in Australia, and is usually the safest (and most popular) option on the menu.

My version took quite a while to make, but it tastes heaps better than the Parmas where I used to have lunch once a month with my workmates.

4 chicken breasts

oil and butter for frying

plain flour

parmesan cheese

2 Cups breadcrumbs

2 eggs

1 Tblspn milk

ham slices

grated cheese (I use a mixture from the supermarket which is already grated and includes parmesan, cheddar and mozzarella).

425gm tin canned chopped tomatoes

garlic

1 onion – finely chopped

1 sachet tomato paste

1 Tblspn brown sugar

Cook the chopped onion and garlic in a saucepan in butter, then add the tinned tomatoes, tomato paste and brown sugar and simmer for 20 minutes. (This sauce is so delicious I can eat it straight from the pot).

Flatten the chicken between sheets of cling wrap (I smashed the chicken with a rolling pin), then dip the chicken in the beaten egg and milk, before rolling it in the mixed breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.

Cook the chicken in a frypan using oil and butter.

Once the chicken is browned and cooked through, place onto a baking tray (remember, baking paper is your friend), and top with slices of ham, the tomato sauce and grated cheese. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes and serve with chips, potatoes or salad.
