What is Milanese, and Where Did it Originate?

Many believe the popular Milanese recipe came from Italian immigrants to South America sometime between 1880 and 1930. It was called Cotoletta alla Milanese and is a dish similar to fried chicken steak or schnitzel. Although the basic preparation may be identical around the world, the accompaniments that the dish is served with may differ.

Milanese was originally a term from Milan that was used for veal. However, it soon lost popularity and was replaced with other meat like chicken, beef, pork, and fish. It’s a dish prepared using thin slices of meat seasoned with salt and other ingredients. These pieces are then dipped in beaten eggs, rolled in breadcrumbs, and shallow-fried in oil.

Lemon Chicken Milanese is a popular version of the dish, and you can make it quickly with just a few ingredients. It’s also a great option if you’re looking for a recipe to prepare ahead of time.

Lemon Chicken Milanese
Instructions
  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and keep aside. Mix parmesan cheese, parsley, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  2. On a plate, pour the flour and set it aside. Do the same with the breadcrumb mixture and eggs.
  3. Take a piece of chicken breast, roll it in the flour, and tap to remove the excess flour. Dip the chicken into the beaten egg mixture and then roll with breadcrumbs. Repeat the process with all the pieces and keep them aside.
  4. Heat oil in a frying pan. Fry each chicken piece on one side for about two minutes and then flip and fry for another two minutes on the other side. Fry till the chicken pieces are browned and well cooked.
  5. Once the chicken is cooked well, place the pieces on an absorbent paper or paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  6. Serve these delicious chicken breast pieces with a squeeze of lemon. Plate the Lemon Chicken Milanese with additional lemon wedges and your favourite sauce.
