I am a bit of a Jamie Oliver fan.
OK. A lot of a Jamie Oliver fan.
But truth be told I consider Jamie more of an entertainer than a teacher.
I love watching his shows, I love the way he talks when he cooks and the stuff he does (separating eggs in his hand and using chopping boards as plates and the like) and the food he makes looks seriously amazingly delicious but for all that I just don't make his food all that much. A combination of laziness, the limitations of my puny Japanese kitchen and the lack of availability of JO staples like balsamic vinegar/ capers/ anchovies/ fresh mozzarella locally and/or for less than the GDP of a small European country.
I was on youtube and saw a JO episode where he was trying to teach a thousand people or so to make chicken parmesan. He taught the first group whose turn it was to teach the next group etc etc.
After watching so many people make yummy crispy chicken cheese and ham I decided I would just have to give it a go.
Of course I didn't have prosciuto (or however you spell that) or fresh parmesan cheese but I had tasty cheese and plenty of this stuff called 'nama ham' which is probably pretty close to the Italian p-word stuff as the group of companies K's company is a part of also contains a processed pork product factory and every now and again they are all 'encouraged' to buy some pork at crazy cheap prices.
Anyway- without further ado here is my version of Jamie's parmesan chicken:
Soooooo good! Seriously. I'm a convert.
Might just try another recipe, even.
Or I could just make this one again!
