Avocado Chicken Parmigiana



Parmigiana (a short form of Parmigiana di melanzane) is a Southern Italian dish made with a shallow-fried sliced filling, layered with cheese, tomato sauce and baked before serving. But here we are making a quick version of this "Avocado Chicken Parmigiana" where tender chicken breast schnitzel is topped with bottled tomato pasta sauce and fresh avocado together with generous amount of grated Mozzarella cheese.



AVOCADO CHICKEN PARMIGIANA
(Quick and Easy version)


You could serve this Chicken Parmigiana with some garden salad on the side together with a bowl of hot soup and bread or use the chicken as a topper to make a pasta dish. And I am sure your guest would be impressed by this dish which is so easy to prepare and yet healthy in sight as well as taste.

(serves4 | Preparation10 minutes | Cooking15 minutes)

Ingredients:
2 Chicken Breast Fillets, halved lengthways
1/2 Cup Plain Flour
2 Tablespoons Fresh Milk
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Dried Breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil/Cooking Spray
1/2 Cup Tomato Pasta Sauce
Avocado, Sliced
1/2 Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
Salad Green, to serve


Method:-
1. Place chicken breast in a clear plastic bag(alternatively between 2 sheets plastic wrap), using a rolling pin or meat mallet pound until 0.5cm thick.

2. Place flour and breadcrumbs on two separate plate and lightly whisk milk and egg together in a shallow bowl.

3. Coat 1 piece of chicken breast in flour(shaking off excess), dip in egg mixture then coat in breadcrumbs using your fingertips pressing on to secure.

4. Place on prepared baking tray lay with foil or baking paper, repeat the same process with the remaining chicken breast with flour, egg and etc.

5. Lightly spray or brush the prepared chicken with oil, bake for 8 minutes(turning after 4 minutes to have evenly colours on the breadcrumbs) in preheated 200 degree Celsius(392°Fahrenheit) fan-forced oven.

6. Remove from oven and spread each chicken breast with 1 heaped tablespoon of pasta sauce. Arrange avocado slices over sauce and sprinkle with decent amount of mozzarella cheese.

7. Return to oven and bake for another 5 - 7 minutes or until golden and chicken is cooked through.

8. Serve with either garden salad or use it as a main topping on cooked pasta.

Personally I love this dish because it is so easy to prepare and yet full of flavour. The tender and juicy chicken breast is infuse with the mixture of sweet and savory taste from the tomato sauce, melted cheese and buttery flavour of the avocado which makes it a great combinations. Furthermore the garden salad at the side also adds in extra texture and flavour to balance the taste.

Hope this would be a great idea for your quick and easy weekend dish for your family or friends. For more ideas on using Avocado you can refer to my other recipes
