Chicken Parmesan

Most folks make chicken parm with the breast of a chicken, I always use thighs. I skinned and deboned eight nice sized thighs, then one by one I placed the thighs in a gallon ziploc bag and flattened them out with the smooth side of a meat mallet

After a good beating I dipped the flattened thighs in scrambled egg wash and bread crumbs

I heated up a large pan with straight olive oil and gave the battered thighs a light fry, about 3-4 minutes a side

On each thigh I spooned on a couple of large tablespoons of rich tomato sauce, then a couple of thick slices of mozzarella cheese

Put the pan in a oven pre-heated to 350º for 20 minutes, remove the pan, plate up with favorite sides, monja time

It's a meal that takes a little time and effort to assemble, but when finished is always a crowd pleaser. I vac-seal the leftovers for when we go camping, zap them in the microwave and slap them on a bun just like a burger, quick and easy, yummy fo the yummy! Thanks for looking. RAY

Looks good Ray, My wife and I stopped cooking with oil as much as possible. So I've been making this and chicken fried steaks on the kettle.

Point for sure

Ray that looks really good! I agree with the use of the thighs they are so much better in my opinion! In the fall while squirrel hunting I can usually find a whole mess of puff ball mushrooms. I slice them up into thick slabs and do this exact thing. They are awesome that way. Nice job!

I keep thinking the oil might help lubricate my old bones a bit Chris, got to admit, doesn't seem to be working real well. Thanks for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY

I've got a Hungarian friend who's mama makes the best squirrel stew on the planet Travis, sometimes she'll throw a couple of bunny rabbits into the pot too. Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY

Ray awesome looking meal sir! Love chicken parm!
It's a big favorite here, my wife's a picky eater. Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY


Man that looks good Ray! Well worth the effort in the end I am sure. I would down a couple plates!
I figure if I can make something my wife always seem to order in a restaurant when we go out it's worth whatever time and effort it takes me John. Thank you for the Like, I do appreciate it. RAY

Nothing wrong with that! I did a lot of rabbit hunting growing up . ive had several beagles over the years. Something I always enjoyed doing. Coyotes and hawks have got our rabbit counts way down so not like it used to be. I raised domestic rabbits for a while too and I need to start back up. Domestic rabbit is really good meat and a really healthy protein. It was fun raising them.

Awesome job Ray. I like your idea of using the thighs, as I never cared much for the breast meat. LIKE

Same here Denny, seems breast meat costs more and is dry. Thank you for the Like, I appreciate it. RAY

I'm kind of a tightwad in the kitchen Bear. I figure a butchers time is worth more than mine so I'll do the work and pocket the savings. The asparagus and chicken thighs were both sale for 88¢ a pound, I stocked up and this was pretty darned cheap to pull off! Thanks for the Like Bear, much appreciated. RAY


Looks Great I like Thighs too Nice Job

Great meal !
Thanks Rich, anytime I can make a dinner that makes my wife Jan happy is worth the effort. Of course she seems to like the things that take the most time to prepare, I figure that's just part of her charm! Thanks for the Like too Rich, I do appreciate it. RAY
