Chicken Milanese with Tomato
and Arugula Salad

Gebrochs – serves 2

Tomato Salad

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, preferably 2 red and 2 yellow, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil, cut in thin ribbons
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 12 ounces arugula, washed and dried, torn into bite-sized pieces

Chicken

  • 4 8-ounce skinless and boneless chicken cutlets
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup matzo flour (also called matzo cake flour)
  • 2 cups Jeff Nathan Passover Panko flakes, or 1/2 cup matzo meal & 1/2 cup matzo farfale
  • 3 large eggs, beaten with 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400°F.

  1. To make the tomato salad, whisk the lemon juice and oil in a medium bowl. Add the tomatoes, basil, oregano, and rosemary and toss. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, while preparing the chicken.
  2. Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Using a heavy mallet or rolling pin, pound the meaty part of each cutlet until about 1/2-inch thick.  Season the cutlets with salt and pepper
  3. Place the matzo flour in a shallow dish, the egg mixture in a second shallow dish, and the Passover Panko or matzo meal mixed with the matzo farfale in a third shallow dish. Coat each cutlet with the matzo flour, then the egg wash, and then the Panko or matzo meal.
  4. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the cutlets and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Place the browned cutlets on a large baking sheet. Bake until they feel firm when pressed in the centers, 5 to 8 minutes.
  5. Just before serving, add the arugula to the tomato salad and mix. For each serving, place a cutlet on a dinner plate, and heap the tomato salad on top. Serve immediately, with a wedge of lemon.

Enjoy, gentle reader,enjoy!
