avocado chicken parmigiana

3 May

I was perusing my all-time favorite addiction (Pinterest…obvi) when I stumbled across this fantastic looking recipe for Avocado Chicken Parmigiana. I happened to have a couple avocados close to death in my fridge and all of other ingredients on hand so I decided to go for it! 

Avocado Chicken Parmigiana (pinned from Cuisine Paradise)

2 Chicken Breast Fillets, halved lengthwise
1/2 Cup Plain Flour
2 Tablespoons Fresh Milk
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Dried Breadcrumbs
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil/Cooking Spray
1/2 Cup Tomato Pasta Sauce
2 Avocado, Sliced
1/2 Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese

1. Place chicken breast in a clear plastic bag(alternatively between 2 sheets plastic wrap), using a rolling pin or meat mallet pound until 0.5cm thick.

2. Place flour and breadcrumbs on two separate plate and lightly whisk milk and egg together in a shallow bowl. 

3. Coat 1 piece of chicken breast in flour(shaking off excess), dip in egg mixture then coat in breadcrumbs using your fingertips pressing on to secure.

4. Place on prepared baking tray lay with foil or baking paper, repeat the same process with the remaining chicken breast with flour, egg and etc.

5. Lightly spray or brush the prepared chicken with oil, bake for 8 minutes(turning after 4 minutes to have evenly colours on the breadcrumbs) in preheated 200 degree Celsius fan-forced oven. 

6. Remove from oven and spread each chicken breast with 1 heaped tablespoon of pasta sauce. Arrange avocado slices over sauce and sprinkle with decent amount of mozzarella cheese.

7. Return to oven and bake for another 5 – 7 minutes or until golden and chicken is cooked through.

I will admit, this dish debuted in my kitchen to mixed reviews. Charlie and I both enjoyed it, but we weren’t in LOVE with it.. I don’t know what it was! Maybe I’m just not a fan of chicken parm with avocado…not that there were any leftovers to back this claim up. All in all, it was good! I’ve had several friends attempt the same recipe and they all loved it, so don’t let me stop you! Enjoy!!
