Ingredients
  

Chicken Milanese With Arugula Salad

  • 1 and 1/4 cups Dried Breacrumbs
  • 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large Egg
  • coarse salt
  • 4 Chicken (use boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 6 ounces each), about 6 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice plus lemon wedges, for serving
  • 5 ounces baby arugula leaves
  • 1 Small red onion thinly sliced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss breadcrumbs and 1/4 cup oil until well combined; spread on sheet. Cook, tossing once, until golden brown, about 6 minutes to 8 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Place flour and eggs in separate bowls; season with salt and pepper. Place a rack on another rimmed baking sheet.
  • One at a time, place chicken breasts between two large pieces of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet or bottom of a small heavy pan, pound until half-inch-thick. Coat chicken on both sides with flour (shaking off excess), then dip in eggs (allowing excess to drip off); dredge in breadcrumbs, pressing firmly to adhere.
  • Bake chicken on rack, without turning, until opaque throughout, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • In a bowl, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons oil and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Add arugula and onion; toss. Top chicken with salad; serve with lemon wedges on the side.
