chicken and salad milanese style

Chicken and Salad Milanese Style was my dinner last night and my lunch today. I can tell you it’s perfect for either meal. I’d probably also eat it for breakfast, not gonna lie. So good.

I have to say, though, that when I got home from work last night, pounding out and breading chicken breasts was not what I felt like doing at all. I felt like eating cereal in front of the TV. Hahaha. But I’m on my own for a couple of days and only needed to do two cutlets, so I sucked it up. I did the prep dirty work, and then let the breaded cutlets chill (Dorie says some chill time makes them cook up crispier) while I loaded up the dishwasher with my messy stuff, put on my PJs and washed my face. In the end it was a pretty simple and quick process.

The cutlets are sautéed in a combo of butter and oil, and you can taste the butteriness in the finished dish. My favorite dude at the neighborhood greenmarket sells a really interesting salad greens mix, with stuff like super peppery arugula, pea shoots, tatsoi, baby kale and purple mizuna. Dressed in a lemony vinaigrette, the salad gives a bit of fresh sharpness alongside the chicken. I’ll make this again for sure, like probably this weekend.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan (it’s also here), and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. This sounds like a perfect solo dinner with PJs! And that salad mix sounds wonderful! I’m looking forward to making this again soon too.

  2. I read your blog last but have commented on some posts that this would make a perfect Solo meal. Although the ingredient and preparation directions seem long, it’s really quickly put together if you’ve got the cutlet prepped. I plan to buy a few cutlets, pound the heck out of them and freeze them separately for just those occasions. Although I must say your meal plan and activities before, during and after, sounded perfect to me. Especially the PJ part!

  3. Loved this “keeping it real” post. You were very well rewarded for your discipline in knocking this out, even after a long day. I have many a “oh cereal in front of Netflix sounds lovely” evenings 🙂 Gorgeous results.

  4. This is definitely something that can be prepped before hand and then just finish it later. I loved that salad on top, it just seemed to work together, not something I would have thought of had it not been for Dorie.

  5. If your story doesn’t get you to make the chicken dish, I don’t know what will. The salad is equally attractive.

  6. I’m a cereal for dinner kind of girl too 😉 But you are right that this makes an excellent solo meal with not that much prep work and big rewards!
