I am always up for chicken. Its not something I ever get tired of. I could eat it every night of the week. I'm not fussy about which part I eat either . . . I love the thighs, I love the breasts, I love the wings. I adore roasted chicken, fried, baked, simmered . . . I just love chicken in any way shape or form!
I was really excited when I found a video on YouTube of Jamie Oliver making some really simple, and tasty Parmesan Chicken Breasts with Crispy Posh Ham! It looked quick, easy and so delicious! I'm always looking for different ways to cook chicken breasts. They are like a blank canvas that takes to all sorts of flavours and textures.
Of course that is one of Jamie's talents isn't it??? He makes cooking look fun and easy, and delicious as well! He's done a lot to inspire young people to want to cook and to eat better!
I made this for our supper last night and it was fabulous! This would work very well served up with some mash and a vegetable, or even alone with a tossed salad. It was moist and delicious and had a wonderful crust of crispy ham. Oh so yummy!!
