Chicken Scaloppini

on August 6, 2012

Today’s Recipe is a family favorite:  Chicken Scaloppini.  Many times when I go out to eat I think, “this is good but I could make it at home easy”,  so I usually do.   I don’t even remember which restaurant this recipe comes from but we have been making it at home for years now.  We often feed it to guests because it is always a winner.  When nana came down for a visit we fed her this meal.  After eating several portions she said “I eat too much at your house, but everything is so good! I’m going to gain weight on this trip for sure!”  I smiled and said “it would be interesting to see if you do.”  When she got home, she weighed herself and had lost 5 pounds.  That was enough for her, she now eats like I do (and makes this recipe to impress company).

Another nice thing about this is that a little chicken can go a long way.  So here’s the recipe:

Chicken Scaloppini

Ingredients:

3 boneless chicken breasts skinned and cut in half.

2 eggs slightly beaten

½ C. lemon juice

2 C. Whole wheat Flour seasoned to taste (I use garlic salt, lemon pepper and Italian seasonings)

4 full strips of bacon

6 thin slices of swiss cheese

2 C. heavy cream

3 roma tomatoes chopped

6 large mushrooms sliced

Preparation:

Fillet each breast in two to three pieces so it is about ¼ inch thick.  Pound chicken with a mallet until thin.  Set aside.  Fry bacon until crisp.  Remove, crumble, and set aside.  Dip chicken in egg, lemon juice, then breadcrumbs.  Fry in bacon grease, briefly.  Place in large baking pan.  Place one piece of cheese on each breast, pour cream over chicken reserving about ½ cup.  Put ½ of crumbled bacon in the cream, mix into cream. Place in 350 oven.  Cook mushrooms in remaining grease until they begin to get tender.  Add tomatoes and cook 2 minutes longer, until tomatoes are tender.  Crumble remaining bacon into tomatoes and mushrooms stir in remaining cream.  Pour this over chicken, return to oven.  Cook until chicken is cooked and cream is bubbly.

Serves 6

this seems like a good time to include my recipe file.  The recipe for Chicken Scaloppini is included therein.  This is one file I send to all my friends who ask for my recipes.
