Breaded Chicken With Mash And Basil Cream Sauce Recipe

There’s something so delicious about breaded chicken and if you add cream and cheese to the mix, then it’s practically creamy. The mashed potato is a must with this dish as it helps to soak up the yummy creamy sauce.

Serves: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

For the chicken:
  • 2 chicken fillets
  • 80ml milk
  • 150g breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 30g butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • For the basil cream sauce:
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 60ml chicken stock
  • 80ml cream
  • 50g Parmesan, grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped, plus extra to garnish
To serve:
  • Mashed potato

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken fillets between two sheets of cling film. Pound the fillets flat with a meat mallet or rolling pin until they are of an even thickness.
  2. Pour the milk into one shallow bowl. In a second, combine the breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning with some salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken fillets in the milk and then in the crumbs, pressing them on to coat.
  3. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side or until completely cooked throughout.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm.
  5. For the sauce, add the olive oil to the same pan and cook the pepper and shallots for 4-5 minutes until just softened. Add the chicken stock and allow to bubble, using a wooden spoon to scrape any sticky bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the cream, Parmesan and basil. Bring to a simmer and season to taste.
  6. Slice the chicken into strips. Place some mashed potato on each plate and add the chicken. Spoon over the basil cream sauce and garnish with extra fresh basil to serve.
