Avocado Chicken Parmigiana

Avocado Chicken Parmigiana - This is a much healthier version of an Italian classic.

Recipe: Avocado Chicken Parmigiana

Summary: This healthier version is oven-baked and uses only a little spray of olive oil to help the chicken crisp up and brown, making this a much lower fat dish. The breaded cutlets are then topped with tomato sauce, cheese and sliced avocado.


  • 1/2 pound (220 grams) Chicken breast fillet, halved lengthways
  • 1/4 cup (30 grams) All-purpose flour
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 3/4 cup (100 grams) Dried breadcrumbs
  • Olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons Tomato pasta sauce
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • Salad leaves, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C fan-forced. Place chicken between 2 sheets plastic wrap and pound to 1/4-inch thick with a rolling pin.
  2. Coat the chicken first in flour, shaking off excess, then dip in the beaten egg and finally coat well with breadcrumbs. Place on a baking tray. Repeat with remaining chicken, flour, egg mixture and breadcrumbs.
  3. Spray chicken with olive oil. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top each with two tablespoon pasta sauce. Arrange avocado over sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden and chicken is cooked through.
