Crumb the Chicken

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the spaghetti.

Sandwich each chicken breast between two pieces of baking paper. Pop onto a board, then give it a bash with a rolling pin or the bottom of a saucepan until it’s 1-2 cm thick. 

Crack the egg (see pantry for amount) into a medium bowl and whisk. Combine the breadcrumbs and salt (see pantry for amount) in another bowl.

Season the chicken, then dip it into the egg and then the breadcrumbs, ensuring it's completely coated. Transfer to a clean plate. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging and discard any excess egg.

Time to Fry

Pop a large frying pan on high heat with enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. TIP: You want the oil to be hot so the chicken fries properly - heat for 2-3 mins before you add the chicken.

Once hot, carefully lay the chicken into the pan, and fry until golden-brown, 2-3 mins on each side. Adjust the heat if necessary. 

Transfer the chicken to a baking tray and bake on the middle shelf until cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.


Spaghetti Time

When your pan of water is boiling, add the spaghetti and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 8 mins.

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).


Sauce Things Up

Wipe out the (now empty) frying pan and return to medium heat with a drizzle of oil.

Once hot, add the garlic and cook for 30 secs. 

Add the passata, red wine stock paste, mixed herbs, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). Simmer until thickened, 6-8 mins. 

Cheese Please

Once the sauce has thickened, stir through the butter (see pantry for amount) until melted. Remove from the heat.

When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven and spread a spoonful of tomato sauce over each breast. Sprinkle over the Parmigiano Reggiano, then return to the top shelf of your oven until the cheese is bubbling and golden, 4-5 mins.

Once the spaghetti is cooked, add to the pan with the remaining tomato sauce. Toss to coat. Add a splash of water if it's a little thick.

Finish and Serve

Share the spaghetti between your bowls and top with the chicken parmigiana. Drizzle over the pesto.

Serve the rocket alongside. Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the leaves to finish.
