Ingredients

Method

  1. Grate the mozzarella and chop the tomato.
  2. Tenderize the chicken to 1/5 inch flat with a tenderizer hammer. If you don’t have a tenderizer then you can cover the chicken with baking paper and hit with a rolling pin.
  3. Mix the bread crumbs (use gluten-free crumbs if required) and parmesan cheese together.
  4. Brush the chicken with half of the olive oil and press the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture over both sides.
  5. Preheat the oven broiler to high.
  6. Heat the remaining oil in a pan and cook the chicken for about 3 minutes on each side.
  7. Place the chicken on a lined baking tray and top with the tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Place the tray under the broiler for 3 mins or so until cheese is bubbly and golden.
  8. Toss together baby spinach, chopped tomato, pumpkin seeds and drizzle with lemon juice.
  9. Serve parmesan with salad on the side.
