What's For Dinner? - Chicken Parmigiana

I was so tempted to title the post "Anyone can cook!" as this is not my own recipe it's my sisters - so all the credit goes to her! She has had dish dish several times, especially in Australia - apparently is a staple on the menu over there. This serves 4

4 Chicken Fillets
4 Slices of White Bread - Bread-crumbed
Salt and Pepper
100g White Cheddar Cheese -Grated
1 Tin of Tomatoes
1 Pinch of Sugar
1 Tsp Fresh Basil
2 Eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to to 190 degrees / gas mark 5
  2. Place the chicken on a chopping board and put some cling film over it and using a wooden mallet or a rolling pin, flatten the chicken fillet slightly - don't beat it to a thin strip!
  3. Beat the eggs into a bowl and then coat them int he breadcrumbs
  4. It would be best to season the bread-crumbs with a little salt and pepper
  5. Place a non stick pan on a high heat - NO OIL, and cook the chicken on both sides, til slightly firm
  6. Then put on a roasting tray and put in the oven for 7 minutes
  7. To make the sauce combine the tin of tomatoes with some salt and pepper and a bit of sugar, then add the fresh basil
  8. After the 7 minutes add the sauce to the chicken and cook for a further 7 mins 
  9. Then add the cheese and remove from the oven once the cheese is melted 
  10. You can serve this with pasta or with a salad during the summer
