As I was cleaning through my piles of torn-out magazine recipes, I saw Martha Stewart's magazine Everyday Food's recipe for Chicken Milanese with Arugula Salad and a side dish of Lemon and Pine-Nut Rice. Sounded like the perfect fresh, light Sunday dinner!
Martha's Chicken Milanese recipe and the Lemon and Pine-Nut Rice ( a variation of Sesame-Lime Rice)
Though it calls for arugula as the main greens for the salad, we used our remaining (and massive!) spinach leaves from the farmer's market. We also utilized the small red onions picked up from the produce stand last Sunday from the Market at Belmar (our version of downtown Lakewood). We also skipped making our own breadcrumbs and chose the store-bought Italian breadcrumbs.
The Result: Tart-laced spinach with the cut of red onions, layered on top crunchy, seasoned chicken breast and a zesty mixture of toasty pine nuts, long grain rice and lemon kick!
