Last week I turned in the final draft of my book 徳赢全站AP徳赢vwin安卓Pabout grocery stores in America,called 徳赢vwin安卓GROCERY: THE BUYING AND SELLING OF FOOD IN AMERICA. One of the chapters discusses prepared foods in grocery stores,a category that's growing but which is really hard to make money at if you're the grocer.The narrative anchor of the book is small chain of stores in Cleveland and Chicago.And one of their most popular prepared dishes is this Chicken Romano.They sell 85,000 pounds of it each year,or 徳赢全站APPabout 1,700 pounds a week.

I'd recently been sent some chicken breasts by a company calledButcherbox,a mail-order buisness offering grass-fed beef,有机鸡,and heritage pork.我试过所有的样品,质量很好。While I still think that the fat of grass-fed beef is a little gamy,以草为食的碎牛肉棒极了。And their pork chops actually taste like pork.

So because I had the chicken breast,and I'd just finished the 徳赢vwin安卓grocery book,I thought the Chicken Romano sounded like something to try for a solo meal.I floured and breaded the chicken in the same plastic bag to make clean-up faster.I served it over rice with some blanched broccoli rapini that I reheated in olive oil and with more garlic in the pan I'd cooked the chicken in.A delicious,satisfying meal.

Chicken Romano

  • 盐和胡椒调味
  • 1 boneless chicken breast
  • 1/2杯panko面包屑
  • 1/4 cup grated romano
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano or parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 clove garlic smashed
  • 1/4杯面粉
  • 1 egg beaten in a shallow dish.
  • oil for pan frying
  • 1/2 ounce butter
  1. Salt and pepper the chicken breast and let sit for at least five minutes or up to 2 days.
  2. Combine the panko,romano,oregano or parsley,把辣椒放在碗里搅拌混合,then add the garlic and stir till it's distributed.
  3. Put the flour in a plastic bag big enough to hold the chicken.
  4. Put the chicken in the bag with the flour.Shake the bag to coat the chicken.把鸡肉取出,放进蛋清里。把面粉扔掉,keeping the bag.Put the bread crumb mixture in the bag.Turn the chicken in the egg wash till it's coated,然后把鸡肉放在面包屑混合物里。把它摇一下,把鸡肉裹起来,pressing the breadcrumbs into the meat.
  5. 把1/4英寸的油放在一个锅里加热,锅的大小刚好能让鸡肉在中高温下吃到。
  6. 将鸡肉煎至两面金黄色,然后煮熟,4 to 5 minutes per side (it shouldn't give too much resistance to the touch).Remove to a paper-towel lined plate and top with the butter.
  7. 完成配菜,然后发球。

Yield: 1 serving

    I've been forced to cook with a microwave in a small space do to a fire.
    It's a unique challenge for someone that enjoys cooking.I made a leftover jar of peanut butter into a sauce with lime juice,brown sugar,a little 5 spice,sambal hot sauce,fish & soy sauce.从上一篇文章。
    I buy pre cooked chicken breast or a rotisserie chicken,soba noodles and lots of vegetables;carrots,frozen broccoli,frozen asparagus- from Trader Joe's.Cover and microwave for 2 minutes,let steam.Top with baby cucumbers sliced on the bias and toasted sesame seeds,也许是香菜,碎花生。
    I love this
    I love the cucumbers,and use very little noodles to make it healthier.
    Thanks Micheal,you keep inspiring me,即使在恶劣的环境中。
