Typical energy values per 100g: 724kJ/173kcal.
  • 75g finely grated Parmesan
  • 4 unwaxed lemons, zested
  • 150g dried white breadcrumbs
  • 10 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves only
  • 6 x 200g chicken breast fillet
  • 50g butter
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • To make the crumb, place the Parmesan, lemon zest and breadcrumbs into a blender and add the thyme leaves. Blend to a fine crumb.

  • Place each chicken breast between 2 pieces of Clingfilm at a time and using a rolling pin, flatten the chicken evenly until about 1cm thick.

  • Break the eggs into a bowl and lightly beat. Place the flour into another bowl and the crumb into a third. In turn, place each chicken first in the flour, then the egg and finally in the crumb.

  • To cook, heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and add the butter. Once it starts to bubble, place the crumbed chicken in and allow to cook for about 3-4 minutes before turning over and cooking for a further 2-3 minutes.
