We've made a little tweak on a classic Australian pub dish. Instead of crumbing our chicken, we've just done a quick sear to cut out some of the carbs, added some eggplant and oozy cheese and herbs, served with some greens. Still right up there for a delicious lunch or dinner!

Recipe

Prepare Chicken:

Preheat oven to 230°C. Firmly pound chicken while still in vac-sealed pack with the smooth side of a meat mallet (or rolling pin) to a thickness of 2 cm. Pat chicken dry with paper towel and season both sides with herb mix, salt and pepper. Put a pot of water on to boil for step 4.

Seal Chicken:

Heat a little oil in fry pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sear for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and place chicken in a lined baking dish. Meanwhile cut eggplant into 3-5mm slices.

Cook Eggplant:

In the same pan used to sear the chicken, cook eggplant slices over medium heat 1-2 minutes each, until just slightly softened. Remove from heat and set aside.

Layer Chicken:

Spoon a little diced tomatoes over chicken in baking dish, add a layer of eggplant slices and oregano leaves, then top with remaining diced tomatoes. Sprinkle cheese over the top and place dish in the oven to bake for 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and golden brown.

Cook Greens:

While chicken is in the oven, cut the broccoli into bite size florets. Add broccoli and peas to pot of boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes, until bright green and just tender. Drain well and add butter, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.

You Plate It:

Divide chicken and eggplant parmigiana between plates, garnishing with any remaning oregano and serve buttered greens on the side. Enjoy!
