What does “Milanese” mean?

Milanese” style means breading something (usually thin sliced meat) in flour, eggs and seasoned breadcrumbs. Then frying it! Chicken Milanese is a very popular dish.

Can I make my Chicken Milanese gluten-free?

Sure! Just use your favourite gluten-free flour mix in place of the plain flour for dredging and gluten-free breadcrumbs instead of the Panko – I like the rice ones from Trader Joe’s.

Can I make this recipe ahead?

You can make the cherry tomato salad up to a day ahead, but I’d recommend making the chicken and assembling the salads just before you eat.

Description

Ingredients

Scale

For the Chicken Milanese

  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil, for frying

    For the Salad

  • 45 cups arugula
  • 8 oz burrata
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • balsamic glaze, to taste

Instructions

  1. Prep your cherry tomato salad by combing the halved cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Mix, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally. Then pound the chicken flat using the smooth side of a meat mallet. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Prepare your breading station: add flour to one shallow bowl, whisk the eggs in a second shallow bowl, then in a third shallow bowl combine the panko breadcrumbs and grated parmesan. Add a little salt and pepper to each bowl.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the flour, then egg, then the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure it is fully coated.
  5. In a large skillet, heat 2-3 tbsp of olive oil. Once heated add two chicken breasts to the skillet. You will have to cook the chicken in two batches.
  6. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. You may need more oil for the second batch.
  7. Transfer the cooked chicken to a paper towel lined plate then cut in thin slices.
  8. Assemble salads by adding arugula, cherry tomato salad, and chicken slices.
  9. Pull apart the burrata and evenly distribute in the salads. Drizzle with desired amount of balsamic glaze.

Notes

When coating the chicken with breadcrumbs use one hand for the dry ingredients (flour and breadcrumbs) and another for the egg to prevent you breadcrumbing your fingers!
