Chicken Milanese, Fettuccine Alfredo and Balsamic Broccoli by Elli Eisman.

Chicken Milanese


  • 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Put each chicken breast in plastic wrap or a plastic bag and pound with a mallet until it is about ¼ inch thick. Season each piece of chicken with salt on the front and back. Set up three bowls. In the first bowl add the flour. In the second bowl add the eggs. In the third bowl add the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, italian parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well.

  2. Dip the chicken into the flour and shake off any excess. Then place the chicken into the eggs until it is completely coated. Finally dip the chicken in the bread crumbs mixture.

  3. In a large frying pan, add the oil and heat on medium high for about 2 minutes. Test the oil by flicking a little bit of flour into the oil. If it sizzles you are ready to add the chicken. Place the chicken in the oil and cook for 5-6 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden brown on both sides and cooked thoroughly. Remove each piece of chicken to a paper-towel lined plate and season with a pinch of salt. Serve with lemon wedges (or ketchup for those that prefer).
