"Rough Day Chicken" aka Chicken Milanese

yummmmmm...this is the easiest chicken you could ever make...lots of photos so i'll put the instructions first :-)'re welcome

ROUGH DAY CHICKEN! you know...those days where you just wanna hit something haha


A freezer ziploc
4 chicken breasts
2 cups plain bread crumbs (pour it on paper plates...easy clean up!)
1 cup of milk in a bowl (any milk...i use Lactaid since I am lactose intolerant and the hubs can't tell the difference anyway)
Olive Oil
A pan big enough for 2-3 pounded out boobies hahaha <-- my immaturity hahaha
An extra serving dish

ok so:

Grab your freezer bag and put one breast in (little trick of mine below).  You can zip it up if you want just leave a little air in there

POUND THAT SUCKER!! You want it thin...almost see through...mine alway burst 

Place/slide your chicken onto a pan and if you want/need to, slice it up (i always slice mine up...small pieces for the kids...larger for the adults)

Put your pan on the stove...cover the pan in olive oil...HEAT YOUR OIL FIRST

Grab a fork...dip a piece of chicken in the milk and then thinly, evenly coat the chicken in the bread crumbs...give it a little wiggle/shake

Place your chicken piece on top of the sizzling oil! sssssiiiiizzzzzllllleeeee for about 4 minutes (golden brown)

Flip it and cook for about 2 in your extra (clean) serving dish

Continue with the rest of your chicken!  You should be able to do 2-3 big slices in your pan and a bunch of littles at a time.

I cook rice and a veggie (we had broccoli tonight) and bread!  THIS would also be amazing topped with an arugula tomato, avocado salad as I read in Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook aka my go to book awesome! are my photos...step by step and a little freezer bag "i don't like touching raw chicken" trick :-)

Fold over the top of your bag and then insert your chicken...

Fold the top bag over..NO MESS AT THE TOP!


In the bag...this is what mine looks like

Then, fold the top back over and just slide it onto your "raw chicken" platter/cookies sheet...staging area? haha

See...thin...ish :-)

 4 Chicken breasts gave me allllllll this!!!!

mmmm...raw chicken.... 

The dippppppp!

 Oil into the pan!

My production line!

 AND they're in!! sizzle sizzle siiiizzzzzle...

 Golden brown yumminess

 Rice, chicken, broccoli, garlic bread via Instagram...hit me up :-) @3girls_and_a_boy!!

This takes no time at all and you most likely have it all on hand...if it isn't breakfast for dinner it's this on a lazy or rough day ;-)




  1. It looks good, I have never pounded my chicken before cooking it-guess I should try that!!
