Cucina is Italian for kitchen. This is an easy meal using items you already have in your kitchen, hence the name.

Serve with a crisp fresh salad and tortellini or fettuccine pasta smothered in tomato sauce. Add fresh Italian bread and a bottle of wine and you have created a beautiful evening.

Cucina Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp. salt
  • water
  • ½ – ¾ cup flour
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. chicken stock
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 4 tsp. grated Parmesan
  • 4 tbsp. red pasta sauce
  • 2 tbsp. dried oregano

Dissolve salt in a bowl large enough to hold the chicken comfortably. Add chicken. Cover with more water. Marinate in the refrigerator 4-8 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°F

Drain chicken, and then pat dry. Pour flour into a paper or plastic bag. Grind in pepper. Shake to combine ingredients. Add 1 breast, gently shake to coat. Continue until all breasts are coated.

Melt butter into olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Shake excess four from chicken and carefully add the breasts to the hot oil. Fry chicken to a light golden brown on both sides.

Arrange the browned chicken on a baking sheet lined with buttered parchment paper or sprayed with Pam.

Dribble chicken stock over each breast. Sprinkle with thyme and parmesan cheese. Top with 1 tbsp. pasta sauce on each breast. Freely shake oregano across the chicken.

Bake 10 minutes and serve.
