A couple of weeks ago I joined the Barefoot Bloggers group dedicated to cooking up Ina Garten’s recipes. Every second Thursday of the month we will be posting Ina Garten’s recipes chosen by members of the Barefoot Bloggers group.
For this Thursday, Megan of My Baking Adventures chose Parmesan Chicken. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken. It was also a favorite meal when I was growing up. We called them cotolette di pollo (chicken cutlets). Panini with chicken cutlets were a treat for our school lunches. Oh yes, we were stared at by the other kids in the cafeteria but we liked to think that they were jealous. Now, my daughters bring extra panini with chicken cutlets to school because they know they will end up sharing.
Then there is the all time favorite, Chicken Parmigiana – chicken cutlets topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella and served alongside fresh pasta. My youngest daughter likes the cutlets sliced into ‘chicken fingers’ and dipped in spicy tomato sauce or honey (hmm…wonder where she got that idea!).
