Chicken Milanese

Decided to make dinner for J last night.
Realized that leaving the dorm in search of groceries was almost dead last on my list of things to do.

Tossed together a salad, scrounged up the necessary ingredients, and served up a delicious and simple Chicken Milanese with Garlic-White Wine Sauce.

Seriously, kids...I used less than ten ingredients.

Chicken Milanese for one:

+ one chicken breast
+ milk
+ flour
+ bread crumbs
+ S&P
+ vegetable oil

          Cut chicken breast in half (the short way).  Insert into a plastic bag, and beat the hell out of it with a skillet. (We're going for small cutlets, kids.)  Apply S&P to bread crumbs and directly to chicken.  Dredge chicken in flour.  SHAKE OFF EXCESS.  Dip in milk.  Coat in bread crumbs.  Bring veggie oil to medium-high heat in a skillet.  Pan-fry chicken for 3 minutes or so on each side.

Garlic-White Wine Sauce

+ garlic, grated, minced, whatever; 3 cloves (or less)
+ vegetable oil
+ dry white wine (I used Chardonnay)
+ mascarpone cheese

       Saute garlic until soft, fragrant and delicious.  Add white wine; crank the heat up.  Once the wine has reduced, remove skillet from heat and melt in a couple tablespoons of mascarpone.  Pour directly over chicken and add S&P to taste.


J says that it's a close second to my Pesto-Feta Stuffed Chicken.  Recipe should be up soon!
