Sheila's Chicken Milanese

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

This goes together pretty quickly and is made even easier by the use of thin-sliced chicken breasts. Served with salad, it is light, refreshing, and delicious!

Top Review by LifeIsGood

Excellent! This is similar to a family favorite recipe, so I knew it would be a hit. This recipe adds a delicious and healthy salad and a few additions to the eggs that I don't normally do. I absolutely loved the additions and will be making this often. Thank you! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2014.
