Step 1

Start by making the tomato sauce so it can become full-flavoured while you do the rest. Pour olive oil into a saucepan and add finely chopped garlic, onion and chili. Bake for a few minutes and add tomato purée, sugar and balsamic vinegar. Let fry for a few minutes and add canned tomatoes. Let it simmer for a few minutes and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Put the chicken breasts in a zippo bag and flatten them with a rolling pin, kettle or something else hard you have in the kitchen. This is to get a smooth fillet that is fried evenly.

Step 3

Now we are going to set up a "breading station". That means a plate of wheat flour, one with beaten egg and one with barbecue flour / panko / bread crumbs. In the breading flour I add a little grated parmesan. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 4

Use a pan with high edges or a saucepan and add frying oil so that it covers the bottom with about 2 cm. Dip the chicken first in the flour and shake off the flour. Then dip in the egg mixture and then into the breading flour. Then carefully place the chicken in the hot oil. I heat the oil to about 175 degrees. Cook on both sides for a few minutes until the chicken has a crispy and golden surface.
