55 Days of Grilling: March 22

Tonight, we made chicken parmigiana — two chicken breasts pounded to be flat. Looking at recipes online, it’s meant to be fried in oil. We were going to cook it on the grill, so I used the same technique that I use to make crispy fish in the oven — add a little oil to the eggs used to bread the meat.

In one bowl, I mixed two eggs with a quarter cup of olive oil and a bit of salt. In a second bowl, I mixed 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp garlic. In a third bowl, I mixed together 1 cup of panko bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. The chicken was dipped in egg, dipped in the flour mixture, dipped in egg again, and coated with panko. Scott grilled the chicken and topped with parmesan and mozzarella. Served with spaghetti and a spicy tomato sauce.
