A number of people have asked what we were going to make in the newly remodeled kitchen (when it was done).
Well, it's not completely done yet, but we do have all the appliances installed. We have some tile and paint left to go, but tonight we did actually
cook our first (nice) meal in the kitchen. The meal was a nice Chicken Parmesan with some fresh green beens. I cooked.
The Chicken Parmesan was done traditional style, frying the breaded, seasoned, chicken first and then baking it. I used one of the de Buyer mineral
steel pans for a one-dish meal.
Pounded the chicken, seasoned and sprinkled with flour. Then dipped in an egg wash and breaded with mixture of Panko and parm. Fried until golden,
and then topped with Marinara, lots of fresh basil and two cheeses (Provolone and Mozzarella). Then baked in the pan at 450.
The dish came out exquisite. Perfect texture, nice browning, crunchy coating, tender chicken and absolutely delicious! Even my wife (the Chef) was
impressed! (that's saying something!)
I had an ulterior motive too. I wanted to re-season the de Buyer pan. So, following dinner, I deglazed it, and re-seasoned the pan to perfection.
All in all, everything worked out very well! Oh, and the fresh snap beans were great too!!!
