Chicken Parmigiana
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced
  2. Place chicken between sheets of baking paper. Using a meat mallet, flatten to about 1cm in thickness
  3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate and set aside
  4. Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add tomatoes and sugar. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  5. Pour hot tomato mixture into a 7-cup (about 4-5cm deep) baking dish. Arrange chicken in dish. Scatter chicken with bocconcini and sprinkle with parmesan
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts and tomato sauce is bubbling. Sprinkle with basil leaves. Serve with crusty bread and a leafy green salad
Tips & Hints:
  • TASTING NOTES: Far from a dish served at the local pub, this version of Chicken Parmigiana is conventional enough that it can be enjoyed as a family dinner or served up at a dinner party. Creamy bocconcini cheese melts beautifully over seasoned chicken, nestled in a rich sauce of crushed tomatoes enriched with garlic and basil. Working in complete harmony is the crisp flavour that comes from the Orange & Passionfruit Mineral Water which marries particularly well with the tomato base.
