Chicken Parma From The Tummies' Kitchen

I remember having my first chicken parma washed down with a few beers at The Standard Hotel in Fitzroy more than a decade ago, many more followed over the years at different pubs across Melbourne. Though I prefer a decent roast beef sandwich these days, chicken or veal parma will always be the ultimate Aussie pub meal for me.

As a meat lover my choice for this recent invention rather than the more traditional eggplant parmigiana is an obvious one. With some leftover mozzarella I decided to recreate my version of chicken parma at home and I must say it tasted just as good without all the noise and rowdy people speaking on top of each other.

I served my parma with oven roasted sweet potato chips but feel free to make your own chips if your heart desires. If you prefer a vegetarian version, please check out my baked eggplant and bocconcini in tomato sauce.
