2 skinless boneless breasts
1egg plus 3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, ground
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Oil for pan frying
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup grated parm cheese
slice breasts into 1 inch thick medallions. place each between parchment paper and pound with a mallet until about 1/4 in thin making sure they are evenly pounded.
mix the bread crumbs, salt, sage, and both peppers. You can alter the seasonings for your own individual taste.
Set up your breading station. Flour, egg wash, bread crumbs.
Dredge the chicken in the flour. Then coat with egg and then coat with the bread crumbs.
Heat oil in a shallow omelet type pan. Cook on both sides until tanned and crispy. These cook really fast since they are pounded thin. Drain on paper towels.
To serve, top with heated sauce and a sparinkling of cheese. Serve while still hot.
You can also use this technique for pork. Change your seasoning a bit. I use 1 teaspoon cumin and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
I found this basic Tortilla recipe in 5 different places. I am posting it as I found it and the adjustments I made to the basic recipe after.
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons lard or butter or oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup water
Crumble the flour and fat together. Add the rest of the ingredients and knead until smooth and elastic. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes. Cut into 10 pieces and roll flat using a tortilla press and rolling pin or just the rolling pin. Fry in a small amount of oil on the stove.
1 cup all purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour and i cup fine corn meal
I developed this because my husband is dairy and egg intolerant. You can use butter instead of coconut oil and regular milk of your choice instead of rice milk.
4 cups cooked macaroni
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup flour
1 cup rice milk
3 cups chicken or turkey stock
1/2 cup white wine (optional)
2 cups turkey cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
1/3 small dice carrots sauted in coconut oil and a dash of ground cloves ( or frozen peas or whatever you have for veggies that are available)
melt coconut oil and mix in flour to make a roux and cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Slowly add broth and then milk continuing to stir until mixture is well combined, with no lumps and it thickens. Remove from heat and mix in turkey, veggies and macaroni. Bake in a 9×13 pan, covered, at 350f for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
**for the bread machine**
Add to bread machine in this order
1 cup water
3 large eggs
1/3 cup coconut oil melted
1 pound Trader Joes Chicken breakfast sausage links cut into pieces
4 1/2 – 5 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 scant Tablespoon yeast
I set my bread maker to 2.5lb loaf with a light crust, it tends to over bake on the multigrain flour setting.
Watch carefully until everything is incorporated. You may need to add more flour or water depending on the humidity level of the day or the sausage.
Very nice loaf with a slight hint of the sausage. Great toasted and served with scrambled eggs or an omelet, or toasted and used as the bread for a breakfast sandwich. If the next loaf lasts long enough I will try it for french toast!
