Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 2 medium garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

For the Chicken

  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 pieces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (or deboned thighs)
  • 3/4 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 50 g unsalted butter, melted

Method

Step 1

For the sauce, take a large saucepan and place it on medium heat. Add oil and garlic, sauté till the garlic starts to sizzle.

Step 2

Next, add the tomatoes, basil, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper. Continue to simmer until the sauce thickens a little and flavors blend in with each other.

Step 3

Now take the chicken pieces and keep it between layers of a plastic wrap. Pound the pieces in such a way that the pieces flatten to even thickness.

Step 4

In another bowl, mix mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper, and coat the chicken pieces evenly.

Step 5

Take one more bowl and mix bread crumbs, grated cheese, pepper, and add butter.

Step 6

After coating the chicken pieces in the mustard mixture, dredge it in the crumb mixture. Make sure the chicken piece gets coated evenly.

Step 7

Press the crumbs gently so that they adhere together and transfer it to a baking sheet.

Step 8

Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 9

Spoon out a little sauce on each of the pieces and serve it with a side of rice or pasta
