Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cover a baking tray with baking paper.

Lay chicken schnitzels on the tray and place ham slices on top. Spoon over tomato sauce. Top with pizza cheese.

Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden on top.


  • Serve with a garden salad and chips for a pub-style dinner.
  • I often make a large batch of chicken schnitzel and use the recipe through the week for convenience sake.
  • Pizza cheese is a store-bought combination of tasty cheese and mozzarella cheese grated together. It is a really convenient product that combines the flavour of tasty cheese with the melting qualities of mozzarella.
  • I used a jar of tomato pasta sauce for this recipe but if you prefer to make your own you can find the link above.
  • I have included ham in this recipe as optional. It is really up to your preferences.
