I had almost forgotten about my Julia Child monthly challenge when Sunday rolled around and I was making my grocery list for the week. With all of the kids various illnesses and things we had going on, I had kind of forgotten to plan ahead! I remember back in February thinking I wanted to make a dessert...but I think I'm going to leave the dessert for the April post since Easter isn't to far away.
The original name for this dish is Supremes de Volaille a la Milanaise...which translates to: Chicken Breasts rolled in Parmesan and Fresh Bread Crumbs. Either way, both titles are very long. So I shortened it to Parmesan Chicken which I think is perfectly acceptable.
For those of you paying close attention, you'll notice the above picture are not chicken breasts, but chicken tenderloins instead. Well...so I have a gas stove and I love it. But we buy our chicken breasts from Cosco and for anyone that buys their chicken there knows that their breasts are huge and it is a lot of work to get that thing cooked all the way through without burning it. Well...as you guess it, I burned the top of my breasts.
But lucky for me, I had thawed out some chicken tenderloin as well because the breasts are to big for our kids to eat. So I ended up using that for the picture. You could say that I'm swaying from the original recipe a bit, but really, who cares! The flavors are there and that's the main thing right? I don't think Julia Child would strike me on the hand for adapting the recipe a tad.
Because this dish is rather easy...now that I've adapted it for my kitchen and the chicken I keep on hand, I would make this a lot more often. It is actually really easy to make and it is so good. And the brown butter sauce is the perfect sauce to accompany the chicken with.
