Chicken Milanese



As you know, my "go to" dish is Veal Milanese. It's a simple 29 minute meal
(I didn't want to use the term "30 Minute Meal").

Last night I decided to try it with chicken, since I always have chicken breasts in the freezer for a quickie weeknight dinner.

This was terrific.

First make a tomato salad with quartered cherry tomatoes, sliced basil, a small amount of chopped red onion, chopped kalamata olives and some fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed. You got that?



Put a tablespoon of kosher salt over this mixture and add about 3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar and 3 tbsp of olive oil, black pepper to taste.

Mix together and set aside. You can make this 2 hours ahead and keep in the fridge.

Now follow the F.E.B. rule for your thin sliced or pounded chicken breasts.
(flour, egg, breadcrumbs). I mixed a little parmesan in the breadcrumb mixture.

Fry up your breaded chicken cutlets in olive oil in a heavy skillet on high heat.
I use a fish spatula to remove them. Place them on a paper towel to blot the oil.



Plate your chicken breasts, and top with fresh arugula.
Now spoon your tomato salad on top! You are done!

Sounds quick and delicious. The fresh mozzarella just made me hungry for lunch already!
I'm so inspired by the healthy meals you've been posting. The salad looks so colorful and fresh. I wish I could learn to like kalamata olives. I keep trying, but I'm not a salty kinda gal. Very yummy looking.

I think yu could make it in 28.5...it looks delcious.
I think if my husband had his way, this would be the only way I ever make chicken. I am always trying to come up with new and creative chicken recipes (because it's one of the few things we both eat) and I think in the end he wants nothing more than a breaded chicken cutlet. Well, it's simple and it's always a crowd pleaser (and it takes that mere 28 minutes!)
