20110413 Tomato and Crispy Crumb Chicken
(SOURCE: GoodFood Magazine - Tomato and crispy crumb chicken)
I was lazy and used ready-made breadcrumbs instead, which made the chicken not very crispy. I still really liked the tomato coat and it went well with the simple mashed potato and cooked spinach I served it with. But my husband didn't like the taste of balsamic vinegar - another one to add to his already very long list of food he dislikes, sigh.
3 chicken breasts, split and opened out
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp tomato puree
handful of basil leaves, roughly chopped
1. Heat oven to 170 degree C. In a bowl, the breadcrumbs with the dried herbs. In another bowl, mix the tomatoes with the garlic, vinegar, basil leaves, and puree.
2. Put the chicken in a lightly greased ovenproof dish. Spread the tomato mixture over the chicken, sprinkle with the crumbs and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until tender.
