How to make it

  • FOR THE SAUCE: Peel the tomatoes and chop them to a fine pulp. Dice the celery and the onion small. Re-hydrate the sundried tomatoes in the wine and chop them as finely as possible.
  • Heat ¾ a cup of olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion and the celery until the onion just starts to brown. Add garlic and cook a minute before putting in the fresh tomatoes. Cook further until the moisture is gone and then pour in the wine – Reduce by half.
  • Add the chicken stock, sundried tomatoes and the tomato sauce. Simmer gently for 30 minutes. Finish with the herbs and season with the salt and pepper.
  • FOR THE CHICKEN BREASTS: Pound them with a meat mallet until they are about half an inch thick. Dredge them in flour, then dip into egg-wash and then into the cheese and bread crumbs (mixed). Cook them in olive oil until they turn golden brown on both sides and finish by baking them in the oven.
  • TO FINISH: Sauté the zucchini and mushrooms in ¼ lb. of butter. Put in the ziti (or penne pasta) and toss together. Divide this among 4 large shallow pasta bowls and top it with some of the sauce.
  • Set the chicken on top of the pasta and ladle a little more of the sauce on it Put a thin slice (1/3 of an inch) of fresh kasseri cheese over the chicken. Set it beneath a broiler until the cheese toasts lightly.

    If i wasn't 97.8% sure this was going to turn out to be exquisite I'd say it will be too bloody much work. Trouble is, I'm 97.85% sure it will. Bugger. Clever about the shrimp in the intro, maybe a tad too bloody clever. Iffin ya don't mind, I'll leave out the tomato sauce and give it a dollop of dry white wine. Don't forget, if you want it to be authentic Greek, wear your bowling shirt when you make it. RJ
