I'm happy to be back from holiday and wanted to share a few pictures with you of my wife Valeria, and our family! We spent some time in Aspromante in Calabria and we rode horses (cavalli)!!
This week's recipe:
Chicken Cordon Blue
4 chicken legs
4 slices of ham
4 big pieces of melting cheese
1 c flour
Homemade bread crumbs:
2 c bread crumbs
1 c grated pecorino cheese
Fresh herbs from the garden
2 cloves of garlic
Debone and pound very thin the chicken leg. For each serving place a slice of ham and
melting cheese on top of the chicken. Fold the four corners of the chicken inward to meet
at the center. Pass into flour and squeeze. Then dip into the uncooked scrambled egg.
Use 3 cups of leftover bread. If the bread is too soft you can bake in the oven until it
becomes hard. Place the bread, pecorino herbs and garlic into a food processor and
Now pass into the breadcrumb mixture. Fry in a large frying pan with a lot of oil, over
medium heat. To measure the oil, it should come up to the middle of the meat in the pan. Cook for 5 minutes on
one side then flip and cook for 5 minutes on the other side. Then warm in the oven for 20
minutes at 212° F. Remove from heat and serve.
