Chicken Parma – BBB Style

Today was my first day back in the office after the Christmas Break and it was painful. But probably not for the reason you think. Rather, it seems I have a severe case of DOMS (or Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness) from yesterday’s weight session! Seriously….I am feeling sore in muscles that I didn’t even know existed!! So, while I skipped my planned run this evening, I did come home and make a protein packed dinnerl. With chicken and mozzarella in the fridge, and tomatoes in the pantry, parmigiana seemed the obvious choice! But as I am not a huge fan of crumbed chicken (or any sort of crumbed food really), I opted to make  my favourite oven baked chicken parma instead. First, while I had two chicken breasts browning in a frypan, I made a tomato sauce combining tinned tomatoes, fresh tomato, oregano, garlic and thyme. IMG_4077 IMG_4078 Then it was all layered together in a casserole dish. IMG_4080 Chicken and tomato sauce. IMG_4079 Plus a sprinkle of olives and chorizo for an extra flavour kick. Covered with foil and placed in the oven for 30 minutes or so, until the chicken had cooked through. Finished with a slice of mozzarella… IMG_4081 Ad grilled until melted. IMG_4082 IMG_4083 Mmmm cheesy. Served with a side of broccoli and beans. IMG_4085 I just love the flavour combination of tomatoes, olives and mozzarella.  And the chicken was wonderfully moist and tender having been oven baked while covered with foil. IMG_4087 A tasty and healthy take on a pub favourite. And , to be honest, I’d easily pick this version over the crumbed variety any day. Although I think I still need to convince Mr BBB 😉 Anyway, its time to watch some Tudors with my fur gals…. IMG_4076 Who, as you can see, are being rather clingy this evening!! What about you? Do you like crumbed foods? Happy Baking 🙂

  1. Awww what a sweet pic of you and the kitties!
    Tomato sauce and olives is definitely something I am going to have to try! It looks delicious!

  2. Ouch, sorry to hear about your muscle soreness and I bet it must hurt because you're definitely not one to complain! That looks great-I do love crumbed food although I know it's not supposed to be terribly good for you. Ah well! Once in a while is ok 😛
