Time for another Italian classic… Chicken Parmesan!
“Reinvented” a bit. This one will knock your socks off.
Instead of your typical, pounded thin chicken, I use small cubes of chicken in my recipe. You make the tomato sauce yourself with the browned bits from the pan-fried chicken and finish the whole thing in the oven topped with ooey-gooey mozzarella and freshly grated parmesan.
This one hits the nail on the head… you’ve gotta try it.
After that rich, indulgent fried cheese sandwich, I thought it was time for something a bit on the lighter side…
A simple salad made with romaine, sliced fresh strawberries, cubed mozzarella, and fresh basil!
Add some grilled chicken and you’ve got yourself a main dish salad!
If you appreciate using ingredients you have on hand to make delicious food, you will like the history of Mozzarella in Corrozza. It was a sandwich that was made to use up day old bread along with ingredients that would be abundant on a typical Italian farm: cheese, eggs, milk, and olive oil.
Simply stated, it’s a battered, fried cheese sandwich.
It is Mozzarella in a Carriage (“in Corrozza”)… the bread being the “carriage” that holds the mozzarella!
If you’re in the mood for more Italian classics… check out my bruschetta recipe!
This being my first attempt at the sandwich I learned a lot and have some tips to pass on to you.
We could probably camp out here for the rest of the year and never struggle to find a recipe.
Picking only a few recipes proved to be a difficult task… How did I choose?
For the first Mozzarella recipe I decided to make something I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to eat…
