I have good news!!! A couple of days ago, I got a call to confirm my training for the new job I accepted. I was asked to pass on Monday at Pole Emploi (the French government job agency) to sign my training contract. I will know more details on Monday, but for now I know that the training will start on August 26. This is real soon and I am beyond excited. I've set aside my current work to focus on this new opportunity and I am looking forward to start! This also means a lot of changes for us. SO is almost starting school so if my training hours are what I think they are, this means I might not be able to bring her to school or even pick her up. And she might not be able to come home for lunch too. Thankfully, we do have a solution because we have a Periscolaire, that covers the canteen and taking of children before and after school. But then again, MR hasn't started yet his job and his working hours might be flexible. Waaahhh, there's so much to think about, but that's what makes this even more exciting!!!
Dad doesn't really like the saucy kind of dishes. I still prepare them though because I like to try and experiment various dishes and frankly, MR and I like the saucy dishes. But today, I decided I'd make one of my eaters happy by making Chicken Milanese.
Prepare your ingredients. In one plate, add a cup of flour and season with salt and black pepper. On the second plate, beat 2 eggs and on the third plate, add a cup of regular breadcrumbs or Japanese panko. You can add Parmesan cheese or herbs to the breadcrumbs if you desire.
Prepare the chicken fillets by pounding on them with a kitchen hammer or rolling pin until they become thin.
Dip each chicken fillet in the flour, shake off the extra flour, then dip in the eggs, then in the breadcrumbs, and shake off extra breadcrumbs. Set aside.
In a frying pan, heat some oil. Transfer the chicken and fry on both sides until golden brown.
Line a plate with paper towel. When the chicken is cooked, transfer to the plate. The paper towel will absorb the extra oil. Drizzle with lemon juice. Serve hot and enjoy!
Lunch is served: Chicken Milanese and Creamy Spinach and Potatoes
