    Ingredients

    • 2 chicken breasts (cut in half lengthways)
    • 4 slices shaved ham (not processed)
    • 1 avocado (optional)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon of milk
    • 1/3 cup wholemeal flour
    • 1 and 1/3 cups wholemeal breadcrumbs
    • coconut butter for frying
    • 120 grams low fat mozzarella cheese
    • 1 jar of mild salsa (Dorito brand or similar)

    Method

    • Combine eggs and milk in a bowl
    • Coat one piece of chicken in flour and shake to remove excess
    • Moisten flour by dipping into egg and milk mixture ensuring that all of the flour is moistened
    • Coat chicken in breadcrumbs by pressing firmly to ensure the breadcrumbs stick
    • Repeat the process with the remaining pieces of chicken
    • Add enough coconut oil to just cover the bottom of a pan and fry the chicken (turning only once) until golden brown and cooked through
    • Once cooked, place the chicken pieces into a baking dish and spread evenly with ham, salsa, avocado and mozzarella cheese
    • Move to the oven and bake at 180 degrees C for 15 – 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden

    Serve with a garden salad and avoid the traditional chips to keep it a healthy low fat meal.
