TIP! Chicken can be crumbed a day ahead. Keep covered in the fridge. For a shortcut, use crumbed chicken schnitzels from the deli counter of major supermarkets. Try replacing ham with sliced avocado, for a change. Tonkatsu sauce is a Japanese-style barbecue sauce with a sweet and salty flavour, available in major supermarkets.

Ingredients

Method

1.

Cut each fillet horizontally through the side to give two thin pieces. Dust in flour. One at a time, dip in combined eggs and garlic. Coat in breadcrumbs, pressing on firmly.

2.

Heat enough oil in a large, deep frying pan to cover base of pan over a medium heat. Add chicken. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Transfer to a large oven tray lined with baking paper. Spread sauce evenly over chicken. Top with ham and cheese.

3.

Cook in a hot oven (200C) for 5 to 8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.

4.

Prepare salad kit according to packet directions.

5.

Serve chicken with salad and fries. Drizzle with extra sauce.
