Ingredients 2 boneless chicken breasts (about 600g)
1 small egg beaten
Up to ½ cup breadcrumbs
2 tbsp Olive Oil
500 - 600 g jar spaghetti sauce
¾ cup water
225 g mushrooms, quartered
150 g packet Ramen noodles, broken up
¼ to ½ cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
Cut the chicken breasts in half so they are not so thick. Discard any small bits. I cut off some smaller pieces that were not attached firmly, and used them, though they need less cooking.
Place the egg in a flat dish and the bread crumbs in a dish or on a piece of paper towel.
I used paper towel to save on washing up
Dip the chicken in the egg and then the bread crumbs, coating all over.
Crumbed chicken breasts
In a large fat free frypan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 5 - 6 minutes on each side till just cooked. Put these on a plate and cover to keep warm.
Do NOT overcook as they will become tough
Add the remaining ingredients except the cheese, to the frypan, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until noodles are tender.
This forms a "bed" for the chicken
Reduce the heat to medium-low and return the chicken to the pan, putting it over the noodle mixture.
Chicken on top of noodle mixture
Sprinkle the chicken with the Mozzarella cheese.
It should look like this now
Put a lid on the pot and cook 4 - 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is warmed through.
Ready to be plated
Serve with a variety of things -baked vegetables would also go well.
This recipe is also excellent when re-heated in the microwave the next day, as the flavours of the tomato go through the chicken.
I think 'Finy' is a very creative and down to earth cook....her recipes are things that everybody would feel confident to try out, not much that one would put in the 'too hard' basket.....keep up the good work!
