    Simply grilled with a knob of good quality butter and some nice wholemeal bread would do nicely thankyou.

    Are you making the Parmo yourself or getting a take-away, as we don't get them down here I'm trying to find a good recipe for it! Be great if anyone had one :D

    I'm still craving since that thread and now it's just been bumped!

    Just a Jacket potato for us tonight, just went in the oven now, will top with cheese, beans and crispy bacon. Not exactly Gourmet but always delicious.

    I fancy trying a Chicken Parmo too and second the request for a good recipe.

    Making my own ! (live in manchester)

    What you need is
    Chicken Fillet
    (wrap chicken fillet in cling film and bash it with a meat hammer or rolling pin till its flattened out to about a thickness of 1inch)

    Then get a 1 egg and beat it.
    Dip your fillet in the egg (both sides) and then throw breadcrumbs over it (both sides again)
    Then you can either deep fry till golden or fry it in a frying pan.
    (or if like me go and buy 2 breaded chicken escalopes).

    Then take you now deep fried chicken put it on a grilling plate & smother it with white lasagne sauce & cheese and shove it in the grill.

    (again if you buy the escalopes like me just shove them on a grilling plate, smother with white sause & cheese and then shove into the oven for 15 mins.

    Serve with chips in a pizza box for that original feel

    Is that picture one you made? It looks perfect, I kind of hate you for posting it now though these last 40 minutes at work are going to be a nightmare :rotfl:

    Cheers for the recipe though, much appreciated!

    No idea what I'll be having tonight, but suddenly I'm feeling very hungry so it'll be something quick and easy.

    I feel a parmo coming on this friday. It'll have to be homemade though as none of the takeaways around snobsville would ever stoop so low :thumbsup:

    Dominos tonight for ease as been away all day so no time or effort to cook.

    Made Thai fishcakes with peanut dipping sauce (I like to cover all the allergies) at the weekend though for a starter and the wife made Thai meatballs. Both were amazingly good. Will post recepies if I can find them.

    I like to poach smoked fish in milk, drain then serve with a big knob of butter melting over it

    If you then strain the milk its adds great flavour to the mash spuds :thumbsup:

    An Indonesian red Chicken Curry. Bought a kit from a pile it high sell it cheap place called 'Noz'. 1€ for a carton of coconut milk, rice and a bag of red sauce. Just add chicken (leftovers from earlier in the week) and vegetables. May well kill me, but it was cheap.

    Edit, had a (fresh ie not packaged) kipper for lunch. A couple of knobs of butter (small) on each side and about 8 mins at gas mark 6. Eaten with slices of bread and a beer. Got another for tomorrow. SWMBO is in the UK so I get to eat what I like but which she doesn't.

    Made my parmo last night. While having never tasting an original I can't make a comparisan.
    But the one I made was ok. Don't think I could go mad on them and seems to be somthing I eat once a month.
    Unlike French Toast !!!!!!!!!
