What you need:

2 large, skinless chicken breasts, halved through the middle

2 eggs, beaten

75g breadcrumbs mixed with 75g of grated parmesan

further 75g parmesan, grated

1 tbsp olive oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed

350ml passata

1 tsp caster sugar

1 tsp dried oregano

A ball of light mozzarella, sliced thinly

cherry tomatoes and your favourite

Fresh pasta to serve

What to do:

Put the chicken breasts between cling film sheets and bash with a rolling pin until thin. Dip in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture and set aside.

Cook the garlic in the oil for a minute, then tip in passata, sugar and oregano. Season and simmer for 5-10 mins.

Under a hot grill cook the chicken for 5 mins each side, then remove. Pour the tomato sauce into a shallow ovenproof dish and top with the chicken. Scatter over the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan and grill for 3-4 mins until the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling. Serve with cherry tomatoes
