Ingredients

  • panko breadcrumbs 75g
  • parmesan or grana padano 30g, grated
  • egg 1, beaten
  • plain flour 2 tbsp, well seasoned
  • skinless chicken breast 2, large
  • olive oil a good splash
  • tomato and chilli pasta sauce 4 tbsp
  • basil a few leaves
  • mozzarella 1 ball, sliced
  • ciabatta buns 4, toasted
  • mayonnaise 2 tbsp, mixed with ½ garlic clove, crushed
  • rocket 50g

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Mix the breadcrumbs and grated parmesan, and season. Put the egg and flour into separate bowls.

  • Step 2

    Butterfly the chicken breasts, cutting all the way through so you have 4 pieces. Cut each piece in two again so you have 8 pieces in total.

  • Step 3

    Put the thicker pieces between sheets of baking paper and bash with a rolling pin until a similar thickness to the thin pieces. Dust in the flour, dip in the beaten egg, then coat in the parmesan breadcrumbs.

  • Step 4

    Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Cook the chicken pieces for 3-4 minutes on each side until crisp and golden.

  • Step 5

    Lift the chicken onto a baking sheet. Spoon over the tomato sauce, add some basil, then top with the mozzarella and more parmesan. Bake for 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

  • Step 6

    Spread the toasted bun bases with the garlic mayo then add some rocket. Top with 2 pieces of chicken each and the bun tops.
