Ingredients For The Chicken:
    2 large  eggs
    1 tablespoon  minced garlic
    2 tablespoons  fresh chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to season
    3 large  chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 6 fillets
    1 cup  Panko breadcrumbs
    1/2 cup  breadcrumbs, (Italian or golden)
    1/2 cup  fresh grated parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon  garlic
      onion powder, alternative
    1/2 cup  olive oil for frying
For The Sauce:
    1 tablespoon  olive oil
    1 large  onion chopped
    2 teaspoons  minced garlic
    14 ounces (400 g)  tomato puree, (Passata)
      pepper to taste
    1 teaspoon  dried Italian herbs
    1 teaspoon  sugar, (optional)
For The Topping:
    8 ounces (250 g)  mozzarella cheese sliced or shredded
    1/3 cup  fresh shredded parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons  fresh chopped basil
      parsley, alternative

For The Chicken:
Preheat oven 430F | 220C. Lightly grease an oven tray (or baking dish) with non stick cooking oil spray; set aside.
Whisk together eggs, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Add chicken into the egg, rotating to evenly coat each fillet in the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate for at least 15 minutes (or overnight night if time allows for a deeper flavour).
When chicken is ready for cooking, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder together in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into the breadcrumb mixture to evenly coat.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot and shimmering. Fry chicken until golden and crispy, (about 4-5 minutes each side).
Place chicken on prepared baking tray / dish and top each breast with about 1/3 cup of sauce (sauce recipe below). Top each chicken breast with 2-3 slices of mozzarella cheese and about 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with basil or parsley.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and melted, and the chicken is completely cooked through.
For The Sauce:
Heat oil in a medium-sized pot. Fry onion until transparent (about 3 minutes), then add the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
Add the tomato puree, salt and pepper to taste, Italian herbs and sugar (If using). Cover with lid to simmer for about 8 minutes, or until sauce has thickened slightly. Taste test and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
