Super Easy Chicken Parmigiana Bake Recipe

Super Easy Chicken Parmigiana Bake Recipe

It would be difficult to find a meal more universally loved than Chicken Parmigiana. This classic pub-favourite can be made and on the table with little to no fuss in just over half an hour using the secret ingredient – a jar of pasta sauce!

Traditionally, a good chicken parma would be made from a chicken schnitzel with the sauce spooned over the top and grilled – this recipe calls for chicken breast fillets and an oven-bake method instead, resulting in delicious juicy chicken with ham in a fabulous cheesy tomato sauce.

I bought this tub of mozzarella on special, but you could easily use grated tasty cheese instead, I usually do.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 chicken breast fillets (enough to serve everyone), sliced horizontally to make thinner steaks
1 jar of tomato pasta sauce
4 slices of ham
Mozzarella cheese or grated tasty cheese
Fresh basil
Oven fries or home-made wedges and steamed veggies to serve

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180°C
2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and cook chicken until browned slightly on both sides.
3. Spread 2 tablespoons of the pasta sauce across the bottom of a large baking dish and arrange the chicken so that the pieces don’t overlap. Top with ham and then the rest of the pasta sauce, spreading the sauce evenly across the chicken pieces. Sprinkle grated cheese or arrange mozzarella circles on top and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and golden.
4. Top with fresh basil and serve with oven fries or home-made wedges and steamed veggies.
