Chicken Mozzarella with Two Potato Mash

This is my new favorite chicken recipe at the moment. I got inspired by Gordon Ramsay when he was cooking a similar dish on one of his shows. This is such a easy and simple dish to make and i promise that your family members will not be dissapointed.
My brother took this picture when he was visiting from Iceland a few weeks ago and he was very impressed with this dish.

4 chicken breasts, boned, skinned & pounded thin
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs
1 tbsp milk
60g plain flour
200g dry breadcrumbs
Olive oil
1 fresh ball of mozzarella
50g grated Parmesan
For the tomato sauce
Olive oil
2 shallots
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
Approx 250g cherry tomatoes
1/2 dl sherry wine
½ teaspoon dried basil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the potato mash
250g potatoes
250g sweet potatoes
1dl full fat milk
50g butter

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Peel and boil the potatoes in salted water for 12 minutes until tender. Drain well and set aside.
3. Season the chicken fillets on both side with a little salt and pepper. Lightly beat the eggs together with the milk. Dust each chicken breast in flour, then dip in the beaten eggs and finally coat in the breadcrumbs.
4. Sauté the chicken breasts in a little hot olive oil until golden brown - approximately 2 minutes on each side. Drain the cooked chicken on kitchen paper, then remove to a baking tray.
5. To make the tomato sauce heat some oil in a heavy based pan. Add the shallots and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add the tomatoes and basil. Allow the tomatoes to soften. Then add the cherry and simmer for 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
6. Spoon a little tomato sauce over each chicken breast. Top with a round of mozzarella, and sprinkle with the grated parmesan. Bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the cheese is melted and golden.
7. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Add the butter and milk and continue to mash together. Season with salt and pepper.
8. Serve each chicken breast with a dollop of mashed potato.

já núna er þetta rétt skrifað hjá mér.....held ég. Bara að fólk skilji að þetta er sérrí vín. Ég tek samt eftir því að þegar maður er búinn að búa erlendis í 3 ár er stafsetningin ekkert sérstaklega góð.

Vonandi prufar þú þessa uppskrift
