The instruction how to make Crumbed chicken with pancetta and mozzarella

  1. Use a small sharp knife to cut a horizontal slit in the thickest part of each chicken breast to create a pocket. Spread 1 teaspoon of the tapenade or pesto evenly inside each pocket. Divide spinach leaves, pancetta and mozzarella among the pockets and use toothpicks to secure.
  2. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Place the breadcrumbs on a large plate.
  3. Coat the chicken in the flour and shake off any excess. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumbs, pressing firmly to coat. Place the chicken on a plate, cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until lightly browned. Transfer the chicken to the lined tray.
  5. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Divide the crumbed chicken among serving plates and serve immediately with mixed salad leaves.
