Operation ‘eat more veggies’ failed miserably and majorly today. I roasted some brussel sprouts and zucchini with salt, pepper, olive oil and my new $459 balsamic. It smelled great last night. For lunch, ehhh…not so much. I had 1-2 bites and gave up. It tasted ok, but it tasted like vegetables! Blah! I don’t want vegetables to taste like vegetables. I want them to taste like treats.
Guess I gotta suck it up, eh?
This chicken romano is SO good, even I ate some. This post may be a bit short because I am feeling slightly under the weather. Boo.
Make sure you tenderize BOTH sides of the chicken breast.
The trio. Dip the chicken in flour, egg, and romano cheese.
Dredge through the flour.
Dip in the egg.
Roll through the cheese. Yum.
Throw it in a pan.
Until it looks like this.
Time for the sauce. This sauce literally melts in your mouth! It makes your mouth feel good, if that makes any sense.
Melted butter & lemon juice.
Ahhh – go ahead and just throw the entire lemon in.
I added this wine because it was open.
Then added it to my mouth. Cavities smavities.
Some dried parsley.
I prefer dried better than fresh IN the sauce, but garnish it with a bit of fresh when finished.
This is heavenly.
Pour that entire thing on top of the chicken.
Cover & bake.
It comes out so tender and cheesy.
The lemons really might be the best part. They are warm and juicy and not very sour.
I served it with pasta for my hubby.
And had a few bites of my own straight from the skillet.
