CHEESY CRUMBED CHICKEN
800g potatoes, scrubbed and diced 2cm
3 spring onions
1 tablespoon mustard (eg, Dijon, wholegrain)
3 tablespoons sour cream 2 tablespoons mayo
Cheesy crumbed chicken
600g skinless, boneless chicken breasts
cup flour seasoned with 1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
11⁄ cups fine breadcrumbs
35g Parmesan cheese, grated To serve: 3-4 tablespoons tomato relish or tomato sauce (optional).
Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Preheat barbecue hot plate to medium (if using).
Toss potatoes with a little oil on first prepared tray. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 25-30 minutes, until tender and golden brown. Turn once during cooking. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
While potatoes are cooking, prepare the rest of the slaw. Thinly slice spring onions; thinly slice cabbage until you have about 31⁄ cups worth; grate carrot. Place all in a large bowl.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels and cut into steaks. To do this, place your hand flat on top of chicken breast and use a knife to slice through horizontally to make 2 thin steaks. Place seasoned flour in a bowl, whisk egg with milk in a second bowl and place breadcrumbs in a third bowl. Coat each piece of chicken first in flour, then egg mixture, then breadcrumb mixture, shaking off excess as you go. Place on a clean, dry plate.
Heat a little oil in a large frypan on medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 3-4 minutes each side (depending on thickness), or until cooked through. Wipe pan out between batches and add extra oil. Remove from pan and place on second prepared tray.
Turn oven grill to high heat and position oven rack towards top of oven. Top chicken with cheese and grill (on top rack of oven) for 1-2 minutes, until cheese is melted. Alternatively, cook crumbed chicken on barbecue hot plate and place cheese on top for the final 1-2 minutes of cook time to melt. While chicken is cooking, add cooked potatoes and all remaining potato slaw ingredients to bowl with slaw veges. Toss to combine and season to taste.
To serve:divide cheesy crumbed chicken between plates, top with your favourite tomato relish or sauce (if using) and serve potato slaw on the side.
