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 pairing with sliced ​​chicken, rocket and parmesan. Spread some washed rocket on the bottom of a plate and season with oil, salt and lemon juice. Then add the sliced ​​meat and finally complete everything with some parmesan flakes.

Similar but lighter, the tagliatelle with cherry tomatoes and rocket is excellent to enjoy in summer , then flavoring everything with a little dried oregano. You simply have to cut the salad, add the quartered cherry tomatoes and season everything with oil, salt, vinegar and oregano.

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


You can keep the sliced ​​chicken with sauce in the refrigerator for a couple of days and consume it at room temperature or heat it slightly in a pan.
