Okay… Okay… I am sorry, I keep meaning to update this blog with the mass amounts of new recipes I have been trying and I start to do it! Lord knows I start my posts… but one thing leads to another and the next thing you know, I am on YouTube watching kittens AND baby sloths with my glass of wine while sobbing because they are so damn cute and I cant help myself!
Well, now you know… I AM A MESS!
I need to get a parental lock on my laptop that blocks YouTube or any relatively cute thing so I can get down to business!
And here it goes!!!!!!!
1 Tsp. Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, chopped
2 to 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 (28-ounce) Can Crushed Tomatoes
1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
Salt to taste
1/4 Tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Basil
4 Thin Chicken Cutlets
Salt to taste
2 Large Egg Whites
6 Tbsp. Italian Bread Crumbs
2 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan
3 Tbsp. Flour
4 to 5 Tsp. Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Now starting with the sauce heat olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.
Add onion and saute 5 minutes or until translucent and lightly browned.
Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes or until fragrant.
Stir in the crusted tomatoes.
Add balsamic vinegar, salt, and red pepper flakes.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer covered until the sauce thickens up. About 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in the basil!
Set your sauce aside and lets get to work on the chicken!
Dredge your chicken in the flour, whisk your egg whites in a shallow bowl, then mix the bread crumbs with the Parmesan Cheese in another shallow bowl.
Dip each cutlet in the egg whites then coat in the bread crumbs and set aside.
Pour yourself a glass of patience and get back to work.
Preheat the oven to 425 and prepare a baking sheet with some olive oil spray.
Pam and I go way back…. Shes my favorite little lady 😉
Cook your Fettuccine according to directions and then heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high.
Working in batches, brown each side of the chicken for about 3-4 minutes each or until they have a nice golden brown crust to them.
Transfer chicken cutlets to said baking sheet in 1 layer.
Pour sauce over the chicken and spread out evenly.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake until cheese is all melted and bubbly, about 15 minutes.
Well boys and girls, I hope you enjoyed this long over due post and with some luck you will try it out in your own kitchen!
Back to kittens and sloths for me 🙂
