One of the first dishes my older son learned how to make for a lady friend...chicken cutlet parmigiana. We find something so primal, basic and satisfying in this dish. I buy the boneless, skinless breast and make horizontal slices myself until they are thin cutlets rather than buying them at a premium price. To me, this is a wonderfully simple, classic and timeless dish. We often pair it not with spaghetti but a risotto. For years, this was the meal my husband requested for his birthday. Though my older son sometimes will request just the breaded cutlets without sauce or cheese, I still consider it a spin on the classic.
It is my hope that this simple dish will be passed down along the generations and loved by all I love. A chicken classic legacy to leave behind for others to be Fed Well.
