Before starting, preheat your broiler to high.Wash and dry all produce.

Halve tomatoes. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Cut ciabatta into 1/2-inch pieces. Add ciabatta, half the Italian Seasoning and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.

Make croutons

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add the ciabatta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown on all sides, 3-4 min. Transfer to a plate to cool.

Prep chicken

Add panko to a shallow dish. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Add chicken, mayo, lemon zest and remaining Italian Seasoning to the same bowl (from step 1). Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, press both sides into panko to coat completely.

Cook chicken

Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 2 tbsp oil, then chicken. Pan-fry, on one side, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. Flip each piece and add another 1 tbsp oil. Pan-fry, until golden brown, 4-5 min. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan. Cook in batches for 4 ppl, using 2 tbsp oil per batch.) Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle Parmesan over chicken. Broil in the middle of the oven, until cheese is golden and chicken is cooked through, 2-3 min.**

Make salad

While chicken cooks, whisk together pesto and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, croutons and arugula and spinach mix. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.

Finish and serve

Thinly slice chicken. Divide chicken and salad between plates. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
