This is a great ‘supermarket sweep’ recipe which uses a few ingredients and a quick cheat to allow you to whip up a delicious Chicken Parmigiana in less than 30 minutes. The recipe I used was from myWaitrose magazine and therefore included only Waitrose products, but you will be able to find the ingredients below in any supermarket, large or small.

Cheat Chicken Parmigiana

Serves 2 | Prep: 5 min | Cook: 20 mins | Easy
We served ours with pasta & boiled potatoes, but this Chicken Parmigiana would go well with everything!
You’ll need:
  • 2 breaded chicken fillets, ready to cook;
  • 350g cherry tomato and basil sauce;
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan, grated;
  • 125g ball mozzarella, shredded;
  • a few basil leaves, shredded, to serve.

Cook the chicken fillets following pack instructions in an oven dish where they will fit snugly. When almost ready, heat the tomato & basil sauce following pack instructions. Pour the tomato sauce over the chicken, spread the grated Parmesan and, finally, top with the shredded mozzarella. Grill for 5 minutes, or until the mozzarella has melted. Serve, topped with the basil leaves and with pasta, mashed or boiled potatoes or salad & crusty bread!
