Roasted Chicken with Herbs

    Roasted Chicken with Cheese and Marinara Sauce

Roasted Chicken with herbs served with grated Parmesan and Mozzarella Cheese and Marinara sauce

I love TGI's sizzling chicken with cheese and marinara sauce. Though not an imitation version, this is a nice home made substitute for it.

Ingredients: Quantity
Boneless skinless Chicken Breast 2 nos
Olive Oil 2 tbsp
Grated Parmesan Cheese 2 tbsp
Mozzarella Cheese 1/4 cup
Marinara Sauce 1/2 cup
Spice Mixture
Dried Rosemary 1 tsp
Dried Oregano 1 tsp
Dried Thyme 1/4 tsp
Dried Basil 1/2 tsp
Dried Parsley 1 tsp
Paprika 1 tsp
Pepper Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt To taste
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Chicken stock 2 tbsp
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
Garlic Powder 1/2 tsp
Onion Powder 1 tsp

1) Clean and cut the chicken breast into half and smash it to a even level. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2) Mix all the ingredients for the spice mixture. Rub the chicken well with the spice mixture and let it marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
3) Heat oil in a fry pan and fry the chicken breast for 2 to 3 mins on each side. Arrange the pieces in a deep roasting pan and pour the oil over it and bake for 30 - 35 mins.
4) In a micro proof plate add the both the cheese and sprinkle little olive oil and microwave for 40-45 secs.
5) Add marinara sauce and place the chicken breast on it and serve hot.
