Instructions
 

What you need to do

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C) and grease an oven-proof dish with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
  • Slice each chicken breast in half, lengthways, then place the chicken on a cutting board and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Using a meat tenderizer, pound the chicken to a ½-inch thickness. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder and salt.
  • Whisk the egg into a medium bowl.
  • Dip each chicken breast first into the beaten egg, shaking off any excess, then into the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Heat ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-low heat.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Wipe the skillet between each chicken breast to remove any brown bits and continue to saute the remaining pieces of chicken.
  • Transfer the chicken to an oven-proof dish and top the chicken breasts with the marinara sauce and sprinkle over the shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake the chicken in the oven for approximately 7 minutes or until the mozzarella has melted and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Sprinkle over freshly chopped basil and serve immediately.
