  1. Heat the oven to gas 6, 200˚C, fan 180˚C and line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper. Cut a pocket into the thickest part of the chicken, along the length, making sure not to cut all the way through; set aside.
  2. Put the mayonnaise, 2 tbsp Parmesan, the anchovy, garlic, mustard, lemon juice and chives in a small mixing bowl. Season well with pepper and whisk together until well combined. Spoon the sauce into each of the chicken pockets.
  3. Put the breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp Parmesan in a bowl and mix with the olive oil. Put the flour and egg on 2 separate lipped plates. Carefully dip each chicken breast into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Place on a baking tray, scatter with the remaining 1 tbsp Parmesan and bake in the oven for 20 mins until lightly golden and cooked through. Serve with an extra scattering of chives.
