    Karin...'s Note:

    This is a very quick and easy 'Dinner Party' recipe which over the years I have frequently used and one that many of our friends seem to rate very highly.It can be prepared in advance and easily re-heated. The preparation time includes the time it takes to coat the chicken and to make the sauce.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Coat the chicken fillets with beaten egg (well seasoned), and bread crumbs.
    2. 2
      Repeat this process (coating each fillet twice).
    3. 3
      Fry the crumbed chicken gently in oil or butter, or in mixture of both, until golden on both sides.
    4. 4
      Drain on absorbent kitchen paper towels and place in baking dish in a single layer.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, empty can of tomatoes (including juice) into a saucepan.
    6. 6
      Press down with a potato masher (or similar) to break up the pieces of tomato.
    7. 7
      Add tomato paste, crushed garlic, herbs, wine and water.
    8. 8
      Simmer gently for about 10 minutes- until reduced to a rich sauce.
    9. 9
      Place spoonfuls over each fillet, ensuring that you reserve a couple of tablespoons of the sauce for serving.
    10. 10
      Place a thick slice of Mozzarella cheese on each portion and bake in moderate oven for about 20 minutes' Add a little water to the remaining tomato sauce-creating a small amount of thin tomato'gravy'.
    11. 11
      Serve with boiled and buttered noodles and vegetables such as zuccinnis and carrots or a crisp salad.
    12. 12
      A VARIATION to this easy recipe is to use chicken breasts instead of fillets and making a slit through the centre of each one, stuff with a mixture made up of cooked and chopped spinach, finely chopped onion and crumbled Feta cheese.

      WOW!!!!! This was Delicious and Easy!!!!!The sauce was amazing!!! Next time I might add just a pinch of sugar to the sauce. I didn't have bread crumbs and used dry stuffing, this added a nice added flavor. I also added 1/2lb of boiled ham on top of the chicken fillets before adding the cheese. Definite Keeper!!!!!!!

      Easy and very good. I agree with the previous review about adding sugar to the sauce--which I did. I also added chopped onion, oregano, basil, and pepper for more flavor.

      This was easy to make. We just didn't enjoy what the tomato sauce did to the crispy-ness of the chicken. The crunchy coating was fantastic. Next time, we will place the chicken on top of the sauce instead. Other than that, this was great.
