  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 1 h
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 250 mL
  • 1 tsp salt 5 mL
  • ½ tsp pepper 2 mL
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk 125 mL
  • 1 ½ cups Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs 375 mL
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese 60 mL
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) dried or 1 tsp (5 mL) finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (7 oz/200 g each)
  • ¼ cup Sensations by Compliments Extra Virgin 100% Olive Oil, divided 60 mL
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can Compliments Diced Tomatoes 796 mL
  • 1 tsp sugar 5 mL
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh basil 60 mL
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley 60 mL
  • 4 slices Sensations by Compliments Provolone Cheese

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix flour, salt and pepper. In a second bowl, fork-beat eggs and milk. In a third bowl, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan and oregano. Dip all sides of chicken breasts in the flour mixture; shaking off excess. Roll in egg mixture to moisten flour coating; letting excess egg drip off. Dredge in breadcrumb mixture; coating all sides.

  • Step 2

    Drizzle 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil on lined baking sheet; place chicken breasts overtop. Bake 10 min. Flip over; bake another 10 min., until breading is golden and internal temperature of chicken reaches 74˚C (165˚F). Remove from oven (but keep oven on).

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat rest of oil on medium-low heat. Stir in carrot, onion and garlic; cook to soften but do not brown. Stir in tomatoes and sugar. Lower heat to a gentle simmer; cook until sauce has thickened, about 15 min. Stir in basil and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

  • Step 4

    Spoon about ¼ cup (60 mL) tomato sauce on top of each chicken breast; top with a slice of provolone. Bake another 5 min., or until cheese is melted. Serve with Caesar Salad, if desired.
