Total Time 40 mins



  • 3 parsnips cut into chips
  • 1 tsp oil


  • 550 g free range chicken breasts cut into steaks
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp oil

  • 50 g Parmesan cheese grated


  • 1 broccoli cut into small florets
  • 200 g green beans cut in half
  • 75 g baby spinach

  • Before you start, preheat oven to 220°C (or 200°C fan bake). Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil. Set aside a medium baking dish.
  • Prep parsnips and toss on a lined oven tray with oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast on lower oven rack for about 25 minutes, until tender and golden.

Add egg to same bowl, split yolk and toss to coat. Place crumbs in another bowl, add chicken 1 piece at a time and coat well. Transfer to a plate, shaking off excess crumbs as you go.
  • Heat oil in a large fry pan on medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden. Transfer to baking dish, pour over cherry tomato sauce and sprinkle over Parmesan cheese. Bake on upper oven rack for 6-8 minutes, until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.

  • Slice chicken while in dish if desired.
