Chicken Parm Supreme

The ultimate comfort food with the dream marinara sauce.

Notes:

Make sure you add the passata 20 seconds after adding the garlic. You don’t want a burnt garlic taste ruining the sauce.

Cooking Time (includes preparation time): 40 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts - £4.00

  • 1 Bunch of Basil - £0.70

  • 1 Ball of Mozzarella - £0.47

  • A 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 the marinara sauce. Get a frying pan on the heat, add a big glug of olive oil and add 2 crushed garlic cloves. Fry for 20 seconds and pour in your passata. Add 300ml of water and bubble down until thickened.

  2. Once thick, add a big handful of fresh basil. Mix it in and remove the sauce from the heat.

  3. Chicken time. Take a chicken breast. You are going to butterfly it. With a sharp knife, cut from one side, length ways, to half way through. 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 chicken breasts.

  4. Coat each breast in beaten egg (seasoned with salt and pepper) followed by breadcrumbs.

  5. 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.

  6. Spoon your sauce into a baking dish and lay your chicken pieces on top. Add 3 slices of mozzarella to each piece. Cover the chicken with grated Parmesan. Season with pepper and drizzle on some olive oil. Place under a hot grill for 10 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

  7. Remove from the oven and tuck in. Enjoy!
