I’m not embarrassed to admit how much I love chicken. I’ll take any excuse to put it on my lunch or dinner menu! One of my absolute favorite light chicken dishes is chicken Milanese.
While everyone might have their own version of the classic Italian dish, I serve mine as a light and fresh arugula salad on top of a Parmigiano-Reggiano crusted chicken cutlet. It’s a simple but elegant meal that’s easy enough for a weeknight dinner, not to mention fun to prepare. You can even get the kids involved with this one!
This dish is all about texture. You want to have a beautiful golden brown crust on the outside while keeping the inside juicy. I like to toss the arugula with cherry tomatoes, red onion, basil, extra virgin olive oil, lemon and a little bit of salt and pepper. It’s up to you if you want to get creative with any gorgeous produce you come across!
