Used different ingredients. Take your chicken coated in breadcrumbs and place in an ovenproof dish. Lightly spread a thin layer of bechamel sauce over chicken. Top in off with a generous amount of cheese and bake in oven until chicken is cooked, around 30-40 mins. This is a typical North East Parmo! - 22 Feb 2011
