Chicken Milanese

  • 4 Chicken Breasts pounded thin
  • 2 cups Pork Panko
  • 1 tsp Salt divided
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Tapioca Flour
  • 2 Tbls Avocado Oil

Arugula & Tomato Salad

  • 2 cups Arugula
  • 1/2 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbls Lemon Juice


Chicken Milanese

  • Use a meat tenderizer to pound the chicken super thin*
    Then make your breading station with 3 plates
    The tapioca flour with 1/2 tsp of the salt is on the first plate
    The whisked eggs are on the second plate or bowl
    The pork panko mixed with the remaining 1/2 tsp of salt, pepper, dried rosemary, dried oregano and dried parsley is on the last plate
  • Take the chicken and coat with the tapioca flour and shake off
    Then dip in the egg
    And lastly, coat it with the seasoned pork panko (set aside)
  • Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken for 3-5 minutes each side. Should be cooked through with a nice golden crust. It may take longer depending on the thickness of the chicken

Arugula & Tomato Salad

  • In a small bowl whisk the oil and the lemon juice together and add a little pich of salt and pepper to taste
  • Add the arugula and tomatoes to a large bowl and add some dressing. Dress the salad to your preference, you can always serve it on the side too


*if you don't have a meat tenderizer, you can place the chicken between sheets of parchment and pound it thin with a rolling pin
