Petti di pollo al limone – Lemon chicken breasts


Recipe 134: Yesterday i knew my italian friend was coming back to London after a little break in Rome.

What i didn’t know was that she wanted to come directly to my house from the airport to have a girly italian night before restarting the frenetic London life. So quick recap of what was in my fridge and i found a simple solution to eat light and quickly with just basic ingredients.

This will be the quickest recipe of the blog i think, healthy and easy to cook every night of the week…. and a classic in my parents house. I’m sorry if the pictures are not amazing, but i was missing my official photographer yesterday.

The ingredients for 2 people are: 2 chicken breasts – a bit of flour – 1 or 2 lemons – oil – salt and peppers. Then if you have some vegetable to boil and serve with it, the plate will be complete.

Take the chicken breasts and make them very thin, cutting them and pressing them with anything you think you can use. More thin they will be and more taste they will have.

Then put the meat in some flour until they are totally white. Hot up some oil in a pan and put them in. After a bit, when they start to take color, add some lemon juice (1 full lemon i think is enough) and a bit of water to create some more sauce. Keep on turning the meat until is all cooked and colored.

Serve with salt a bit of black pepper and some more lemon juice on top.

Buon appetito!

PS. Ecco finalmente ho cucinato i petti di pollo come te! Rapidissimo questo piatto, leggero e veramente un ottimo sistema per variare il solito pollo grigliato. Anna sembra essere rimasta contenta anche se mi manca lo schiaccia carne che usi tu: con tutto che l’ho tagliato, il pollo era ancora un po’ troppo alto. Vabbe la prossima volta mi invento qualcosa.
