Sliced ​​chicken: tasty variations

Sliced ​​chicken with rosemary is certainly not the only way to cook and serve this cut of meat . For example, focus on a classic combination with the chicken steak with rocket and parmesan. Spread the rucola washed and seasoned with oil, salt and lemon juice on the bottom of a plate. Then add the cut and finally top it all off with parmesan flakes.

Similar but lighter, the tagliata with cherry tomatoes and rocket is excellent to be enjoyed in summer , then flavored with a little dried oregano. You simply have to cut the salad, add the tomatoes divided into four and season everything with oil, salt, vinegar and oregano.

For the sliced ​​chicken in the oven with potatoes, instead, proceed as per the recipe with the marinating of the meat. Then quickly sear it in a pan and finally place it in an oven pan with half a glass of white wine. Cook at 200 ° C for 20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. For the potato side dish, on the other hand, you will have to start 30 minutes in advance by placing them cut into wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season them with oil, salt, pepper, a clove of garlic and bake at 200 ° C. Then add the chicken breast and finish the two cooking together.


You can keep the cut in the refrigerator for a couple of days and consume it at room temperature or by heating it slightly in a pan.
