Ingredients for Chicken Milanese for 2 people

  • Chicken breast - 2 units
  • Fresh parsley - 1 tablespoon
  • Tomato - 1 unit
  • Onion - half a unit
  • Breadcrumbs - 1 cup
  • Dried parsley - 1 pinch
  • Egg - 1 unit
  • Olive oil - 200 milliliters
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How to make the recipe Chicken Milanese

  1. If the chicken breast is thick, we can cut it in half into two parts. We can flatten them with the help of a rolling pin; to do this, place the breasts inside a plastic freezer bag and roll while applying pressure.
  2. Add oil to the pan and heat. Meanwhile, chop the onion, the tomato, and the fresh parsley. Once the oil is hot, add these ingredients along with a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring.
  3. In one plate, beat the egg, and in another plate, mix the breadcrumbs with a pinch of salt and dried parsley.
  4. Dip each chicken fillet first into the egg, letting it sit for a couple of minutes to absorb as much as possible, and then coat it with breadcrumbs. From there, place the fillets in the pan with the hot oil and the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Depending on the heat intensity, cook each chicken fillet for about 4 or 5 minutes on each side. This will depend on the thickness of each fillet, and be careful not to overcook or burn them, as the breadcrumbs can darken easily.

Notes and Tips

You can serve this fantastic dish with boiled potatoes - it's very healthy and consequently, it avoids adding more fried foods, making it a lighter and less calorie-dense meal.

Additionally, you can also serve it with cooked cauliflower topped with melted cheese, creating a truly interesting side dish.
