Dish of the week: Ciabatta crusted chicken with tomato salsa spaghetti


Heat 1 tbsp garlic oil in a saucepan and fry the onion for 2-3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and half the basil and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomato salsa and the remaining basil. Season well and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until thick and slightly reduced.

Mix together the breadcrumbs and the parmesan cheese.

Cut the chicken in half horizontally and coat first in the flour, then egg, then in the breadcrumbs pressing to evenly coat. Heat the rest of the oil in a large frying pan and fry for 7-8 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through and golden.

Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water according to pack instructions for al dente. Drain, reserving 125ml of the cooking water.

Return the pasta to the saucepan, add the sauce and the cooking water, toss to combine.

Serve the chicken with the tomato spaghetti and a good grating of parmesan.
