PETTO DI POLLO!!! (CHICKEN BREAST)

CHICKEN WITH GORGONZOLA AND TOASTED WALNUTS
Gorgonzola is one of those cheese’s that you either like, or you don’t like, you know,it’s a blue cheese thing! it has a little bite to it, along with a very rich and creamy taste.Well I happen to love Gorgonzola, and if your like me, you’ll love this recipe.
Lightly dust chicken in flour, salt &Pepper,and saute in some butter and olive oil till golden. Remove chicken. Add a couple of shallots and deglaze with 1/2 cup of white wine. Return chicken to the pan on low heat turning them once or twice. Place Gorgonzola on top, cover till melted. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts. A simple concept, that gives you a delicious result!! Adapted from 1,000 Italian Recipes

CHICKEN PARMESAN
Sometimes Chicken Parm tends to be heavy with all that breading and frying, this is a much lighter version,that I saw Giada do, it’s a fresh approach with mega flavor!! The key element to this dish is brushing the chicken with a fresh herb oil, yes, make your own, chop up some fresh herbs and place them in a small bowl with some extra virgin olive oil. I used rosemary,thyme, and parsley but you can use whatever you like. Make sure you have a homemade sauce with good tomatoes, I always use San Marzzano, the flavor is fantastic with no bitterness. Squish your tomatoes in some olive oil and garlic, and add some fresh basil thats it!Simple!
Brush both sides of the chicken with the herb oil and saute in pan, till almost cooked. Place fresh mozzarella on top along with sauce and place in oven till melted and cooked through.Top with shaved parm. I’m sure you will love this if you give it a try!

CHICKEN CUTLETS
Again, this is a little lighter version I like to make when I’m trying to watch the carbs! There are no bread crumbs in this, just chicken lightly dipped in egg and then into Romano, parm or a mixture of both, some fresh chopped parsley, and a little lemon peel, salt & pepper.Saute in olive oil till crispy. Believe me you won’t miss the breadcrumbs!!

BUON APPETITO!

  1. The best compliments from an italian who loves italian food and is proud of it!
    I hope you don’t mind if I link you
    Have a nice day!

  2. Marie, you’ve managed to spruce an overdone dish, that’s talent!

    Here, we have chicken wings and blue cheese and so it’s no surprise the Italians would do one better with pollo and gorgonzola!

  3. These all look fab Marie, I love gorgonzola so I’ll be giving that one a go!! Congrats on your first db challenge, it looks fantastic and of course lemon meringue is one of my favourites if not my favourite:)

  4. This looks wonderful Marie!! I love cheese, and this looks so nice, xx Gloria

  5. You’ve done the chicken proud :)
    Nice recipes. The last one is similar to something I do.When making chicken cutlets,some I dip in egg then breadcrumbs, and some in flour then egg. Your photos are getting better and better btw ;)

  6. I am a FIEND for gorgonzola…both dolce and piccante! A good thing that I’m reading this post after lunch…the mention of zola reminds me that I could use a little snack right now!

  7. Wow what a wonderfull dishes with chicken breast.
    I love all of them.

  8. Thanks the last one with the low carb tip. Will make tonight.Allof them look great.

  9. You just saved my day! I now know what’s for dinner (a question I struggle with daily).

    Your friend above is right about your photos – they’re beautiful.

  10. What wonderful chicken ideas!

  11. Oh my gosh…does your family ever give you a night off? :) These are beautiful..I just made veal cutlets the other night, a tradition on Sunday afternoons at Nona’s house.
    Speaking of “no bread-crumbs”…I found that using ground almonds works great for dipping, blended with Romana cheese also, of course..found at Trader Joes!

    I think we should get royalties for how often we mention, “______ ____”.. :)

    Ciao!
