Description

If you like Chicken Milanese from California Pizza Kitchen, you’ll love this salad. It makes a perfect main course salad meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 bag Arugula Or Spring Lettuce Mix
  • ½ whole Red Onion Very Thinly Sliced
  • ¾ cups Tomatoes, Cut Into Bite Sizes Pieces
  • ½ cups Toasted Pine Nuts
  • ⅓ cups Shaved Parmesan
  • 6 slices Lemon (on The Side)
  • Vinaigrette Dressing, Store-bought (I Recommend Brianna's Blush Wine Vinaigrette) Or Homemade
  • _____
  • FOR HOMEMADE RED WINE VINAIGRETTE:
  • ¼ cups Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • ½ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preparation

Using a mallet (or a rolling pin or even a cup), pound chicken until it is about 3/8 inch thick. Salt and pepper chicken.

Prepare 3 pie plates, the first with flour, in the second pie plate whisk together eggs with water, and in a third pie plate mix together grated Parmesan and bread crumbs.

Dip your chicken into flour. Shake. Then dip into eggs, then into breadcrumbs.

Heat butter and olive in a skillet over medium to medium low heat. Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes a side until browned and cooked through.

Place cooked chicken on individual plates and top with salad greens, onions, tomatoes, toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan.

Drizzle with Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette or to make your own, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients until emulsified.

I love this salad with a slice of garlic bread!

This dish is FANTASTIC and simple to make. I made it tonight and my husband declared it the best dish I’ve ever made for him. After 18 years that says a lot! Note: I used Kraft Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette…the flavor was great!

This is exactly the way I expected it to taste! Mouth watering delicious! EVERY family member loves it, from my 5 year old to my 34 year old (huddy’s a kid at heart).
