One dish, two cheeses, and a lot of flavor! Chicken Capri is so easy to make and should only take about half an hour to put together.



For The Chicken:

  • 3 large chicken breasts, halved horizontally to make 6 fillets
  • 1  cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or as needed
  • 1/2 cup oil for frying

For The Sauce:

  • 14 ounces (400 g) tomato passata (sauce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste

For The Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 ounces (250 g) mozzarella cheese sliced or shredded
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or basil


For The Chicken

  • Preheat your oven to 430°F |220°C. Lightly grease a baking sheet/ tray with a cooking spray. Keep aside.
  • In a shallow dish combine the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Dredge each chicken fillet in the flour mixture to coat evenly.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the chicken and cook until golden and crispy on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Cook the chicken in batches not to overcrowd the skillet. Transfer on the prepared tray.
  • Top each fillet with about 1/3 cup of tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese, and with 2-3 slices of mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes  or until the cheese is melted. 
  • Sprinkle with parsley or basil. Enjoy!

For The Sauce

  • In a small bowl combine tomato passata, salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder.

For The Ricotta Cheese

  • Mix together the ricotta cheese  and dried oregano. You can also season it with salt and pepper if desired.
