Chicken Milanese with Arugula

by Josh Theisinger

Bringing a little bit of the deep southern cuisine to the north, this week we introduce the Chicken Milanese with Arugula Salad.  And when I say deep southern cuisine, I'm talking waaay south... like South American.

A milanese is a South American dish that revolves around a meat filet that is breaded and pan fried before being finished off with a lemon juice drizzle.  We took this dish one step further and turned it into a salad that exemplifies the original entree.

We start with our pan-fried 8 ounce chicken breast. Then we place a bed of fresh arugula salad and a chopped bruschetta relish on top consisting of grape tomatoes, garlic, onion and basil. The dish gets finished off with a lemon, balsamic vinaigrette.
