Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 45 mins
Serves: 6

Ingredients : 

For The Chicken:
2 large eggs
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp fresh chopped parsley
Season with salt and pepper
Six fillets were created by splitting three big chicken breasts horizontally.
1 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs (Italian or golden)
1/2 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic or onion powder
1/2 cup of olive oil for frying
For The Sauce:
1 tsp olive oil
1 large onion chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
14 ounces (400 g) tomato puree (Passata)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp dried Italian herbs
1 tsp sugar (optional)
For The Topping:
8 oz (250 g) mozzarella cheese sliced or shredded
1/3 cup of freshly shredded parmesan cheese
2 tsp fresh chopped basil or parsley

Instructions : 

For The Chicken:
1. Heat the oven to 430°F or 220°C. Set aside a baking dish or oven tray that has been lightly greased with nonstick cooking oil spray.
2. In a shallow dish, combine the eggs, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper. Rotate the chicken in the egg mixture after adding it, coating each fillet completely. For at least 15 minutes, marinate covered with plastic wrap (or overnight night if time allows for a deeper flavor).
3. Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder in a separate shallow basin before frying the chicken. To uniformly coat the chicken, dip it into the breadcrumb mixture.
4. Over medium-high heat, warm the oil in a big skillet until it shimmers. Chicken should be fried till golden and crispy (about 4-5 minutes on each side).
5. Put the chicken on the dish or baking sheet that has been prepared, and then spoon approximately 1/3 cup of sauce over each breast (sauce recipe below). Add a few slices of mozzarella cheese and roughly two teaspoons of parmesan cheese to the top of each chicken breast. Add some parsley or basil.
6. Cook the chicken in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
For The Sauce:
1. Heat oil in a medium-sized pot. Fry onion until transparent (about 3 minutes), then add the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
2. Add the tomato puree, salt, and pepper to taste, Italian herbs, and sugar (If using). Cover with lid to simmer for about 8 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly. Taste the food and, if necessary, adjust the salt and pepper.
