Baked Chicken alla Milanese

Nuvita Biscuits

This quick and easy Italian Chicken Milanese recipe is baked, not fried — it’s not only healthier, it also leaves less of a mess behind!


  • 1 clove(s) garlic
  • 1 cup(s) parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup(s) seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 boned chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry
  • 4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 lemon wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Chop the garlic together with the parsley and place in a small bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Moisten this mixture with 2 tablespoons of oil.
  3. Lay the boned thighs in a heavy baking pan and coat the top of the chicken with the breadcrumb mixture. Drizzle the chicken with the remaining olive oil and bake for 25 minutes, or until browned. Serve with lemon wedges.

    What’s a good side for dinner besides french fries give many options if possible

    Brazilian families serve their Christmas dinner at midnight on Christmas Eve. Roast turkey comes with sarrabulho (curdled pig’s blood), or decorated with pineapple, while enormous baked hams are accompanied by fruit preserves and dried fruit.

    Perhaps snail soup isn’t what you’d imagined eating for Christmas dinner this year. But on Christmas day many Ghanaians tuck into a soup made with dried fish, smoked fish, chicken and chopped African land snails.

    Pungent fish flavours feature heavily in the main Swedish Christmas meal, served in the evening on Christmas Eve. Lutfisk, an aged dried fish served with a creamy sauce, pickled herring, cured salmon or Jansson’s frestelse (Jansson’s temptation), a casserole with potatoes, anchovies and cream might form part of the meal. Swedes call their Christmas dinner julbord, and it is a version of the Swedish buffet-style smorgasbord.

    “Christmas is not such a great festivity in Italy as it is in northern Europe,” says Italian-born food writer Anna Del Conte, “and the northern regions celebrate it far more than the southern ones.” However Christmas lunch is the most important meal of the holiday and, like all good Italian feasts, is a marathon of courses.

    “The food was always the same, year after year, starting from the smoking mountain of yellow risotto, lavishly showered with truffles and finishing with the panettone, torrone, marrons glaces , candied fruits, Malaga grapes, walnuts, mandarins, hazelnuts, oranges, dates, stuffed dried figs, almond fruits and other sweet things.”

    “In the middle of these two courses the tacchino alla milanese arrived, turkey Milanese-style, which is in fact very similar to turkey English-style, the roast bird being stuffed with chestnuts, prunes, sausage and all the rest.”

    Other delicacies that might find their way onto an Italian Christmas dinner table include lo zampone, a pig’s foot filled with spiced mincemeat or il cotechino, a sausage made from pig’s intestines.

    so do you fancy Brazilian, Ghanaian, Swedish or Italian?

    Ive got a new found love for the food ‘Salt & Pepper squid’ but ive heard consuming it too much is bad for you, because of the salt levels. Why is too much salt bad for you?

    THis is my first time making meatballs, and I was wondering how I should use oats if I sub them in for breadcrumbs. Do I ground them or something?
    Similarly, if I used Ritz crackers, I should crumble them right? What’s the best (least messy) way to do that?
    Oh I also have garbanzo bean flour (chickpea flour/besan) I heard that might work. Which’s one’s recommended?

    I don’t have bread or shop bought breadcrumbs but I do have flour, butter, herbs and salt- if I rub this together to make a crumb consistency and layer on my fillet of fish before baking will the topping get crispy?

    I have made chicken and rice, pork and rice, and fried rice. Are there any other rice recipes I can do? In my family there is a mix of latin and asian, so rice is a must. Any new ideas?

    I made crabcakes yesterday in a cast-iron skillet that I had heated and put canola oil. They turned out pretty well except some of the breadcrumbs were burned before the rest of the crabcake had cooked.

    It’s basically crab, mayo, eggs, scallions, green peppers and panko breadcrumbs mided together then coated in panko breadcrumbs that I divided and cooked.on the skillet. What can I do to make it without burning the breadcrumbs
