A simple Parmesan chicken recipe is as follows:
Four chicken cutlets should be used for the main part of the recipe, and Italian bread crumbs, mozzarella, 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan, 3 tablespoons of flour and 2 large egg whites are also needed. The sauce needs 1 can of chopped tomatoes, 3 to 4 cloves of garlic, 1 onion and fresh basil.
Begin by frying the chopped onion in a little olive oil over a medium heat. Once the onion is golden, add the chopped garlic and cook for a further minute or so. Finally, add the tomatoes��(a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar can also be added here)��and bring to the boil, before reducing the heat and allowing to simmer for 10 minutes. Add the basil once the sauce has reduced.
Prepare a baking tray with oil, and heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Season the cutlets with some salt, then beat the egg whites. Combine the Parmesan and breadcrumbs together into a fine powder, then dip the chicken in the flour, followed by the eggs, before coating in the cheese and breadcrumb mixture. Once coated, fry the chicken in a hot pan for around 4 minutes or until golden on both sides.
Place the chicken in the baking tray, then pour over the sauce. Bake for around 15 minutes then serve.
