Notes:

Make sure you add the passata 20 seconds are adding the garlic – you don’t want that burnt garlic taste ruining the sauce.

Cooking Time (includes preparation time): 40 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts - £4.00
  • Bunch of Basil - £0.70
  • 1 Ball of Mozzarella - £0.47
  • Block of Parmesan - £2.00
  • Garlic - £0.30
  • Breadcrumbs - £0.75
  • 1 Egg - £0.89
  • 680ml Jar of Passata - £0.62
  • Total Cost - £9.73 - This covers absolutely everything. All we assume you have in your kitchen beforehand is SALT, PEPPER AND OLIVE OIL.

Method:

  1. Start with Marinara sauce. Crush 2 cloves of garlic into a frying pan with a big glug of olive oil. Fry for 20 seconds, and then pour in your passata. Add 300ml water, and bubble down until thickened. Once thick, add a big handful of fresh basil. Mix it in, and then remove the sauce from the heat.
  2. Chicken time. Take a breast. You are going to butterfly it. With a sharp knife, cut one side, lengthways, half way through. Then, lie the breast cut side down, and cover with a piece of cling film. Get a rolling pin, and bash the chicken until it is about the thickness of a £1 coin. Do this with all the breasts.
  3. Coat each breast in beaten egg (seasoned with salt and pepper) and then breadcrumbs.
  4. Heat a frying pan with some oil. Add the chicken piece by piece, frying for 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp and golden.
  5. Get a baking dish. Spoon your sauce into the dish, and then lay your chicken pieces on top. Add 3 slices of mozzarella to each piece, and then cover the chicken with grated parmesan. Season with pepper, drizzle on some olive oil and then place under a hot grill for 10 minutes or until golden and bubbling.
  6. Remove from the oven and tuck in. Enjoy!
