A classic Italian-American dish, which, although, it takes some time to make, is entirely worth it! There are lots of different versions of this dish, which feature veal or eggplant, but in our minds this is classic.

INGREDIENTS

CHICKEN

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 lbs Chicken breast, boneless and skinless
