DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  • Grease an ovenproof dish (I use butter but I am sure olive oil could work).
  • Tear the bread into pieces and put it into a mixer, add the seeds and turn them into rough breadcrumbs.
  • Add the parmesan, pepper and lemon zest (if using).
  • Melt the butter.
  • Add the butter to the breadcrumb mixture and mix well.
  • Put the chicken breasts in the ovenproof dish and pat the breadcrumb mixture firmly down on top of them, covering all of the flesh.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Optional: Once the chicken is cooked take it from the dish and add the lemon juice to the pan, mix well and serve as a side-sauce. This is very strong and not everyone likes it but it works very well with veggies such as broccoli. Use sparingly!
