I honestly would cook ten times more, but I just truly hate grocery shopping... like down to my core, and tragically the grocery shopping situation in Niskayuna has just gotten worse - thanks to Shop Rite. The big talk of the town is the new grocery store they just put in St. James Square, which is down the street from my house. I couldn't even get my morning Starbucks because the parking lot was completely full with shoppers, due to the "double coupon" deal (which I told my mom I took advantage of but really I didn't because I just wanted to get out of that place) ... the madness needs to stop!
Alright, enough with my ranting...
The ingredients you will need for this recipe are:
Grated romano cheese
All purpose flour
One package of thinly sliced chicken (my package had 8 pieces)
1/2 - 3/4 stick of butter
1 1/2 lemons
2/3 cup white wine
1 cup chicken stock
Start by tenderizing the chicken between two pieces of parchment paper - on both sides.
|Romano cheese, flour, & egg (the scissors and calculator were not used in this dish...)|
1) all purpose flour
2) 2 eggs
3) romano cheese mix
(That's the order I dredged them in)
I decided to "spice up" the cheese by adding garlic salt, parsley, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
After all of the pieces were dredged I heated a pan with some EVOO on medium heat, and fried the chicken, two at a time, until it was golden brown. I fried about 8 pieces, so halfway through I added some fresh EVOO so it wouldn't burn.
As the pieces came out of the skillet I transfered them to a baking pan. While cooking the chicken you should also preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
As the butter begins to melt, squeeze in the lemon juice. Once all of the juice is extracted, add the whole lemons into the skillet for more flavor.
Finally, add the parsley, wine, and chicken stock. Let the mixture come to a boil and then remove it from the heat. Pour the sauce over the chicken, cover with foil, and bake in a 350 degree oven for roughly 20 minutes.
Obviously I poured myself a glass - I clearly was not going to open a brand new bottle of wine and only use some for the sauce...
I decided to serve the chicken with some spaghetti and homemade sauce that was left over from the night before. I actually incorporated a little of the liquid from the chicken into the red sauce to tie in the flavors.
And there you have it... a quick and tasty meal! I'm going to assume it's tasty because my dad and brother both went back for thirds.
Kelly creepin' on my amazing meal....
