Chicken parmo recipe on The Hairy Bikers food show

Simon and Dave served up a tasty Italian chicken parmigiana dish on The Hairy Bikers food show.

The duo says: “Here’s an easy and delicious chicken parmigiana, a meaty variation on the classic Italian recipe. Make sure you put tomato sauce on the bottom – this way the chicken stays nice and moist.”

The ingredients for the chicken are: 4 chicken breasts, butterflied and slightly flattened, 100g plain flour, 2 free-range eggs, beaten, 75g Parmesan, grated, 75g breadcrumbs, 1 tsp dried oregano, few basil leaves, finely chopped, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

For the tomato sauce: 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 onion, finely chopped, 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped, 100ml red wine, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes (or fresh equivalent), pinch sugar (optional), salt and freshly ground black pepper.

To assemble: 1 garlic clove, 1 tsp olive oil, 2 balls mozzarella, sliced and handful fresh basil leaves.
