This week we received 3 enticing meals from Blue Apron: Spicy Hoisin Chicken Stir Fry, Cod Sandwiches, and Smoked Mozzarella and Cabbage Flatbread. We were not too excited about the Cod Sandwiches, and decided to make some changes that would affect two meals this week.
We went ahead and swapped out two proteins, Cod and Chicken, with each other. This would give us a Cod based Stir Fry and Chicken Sandwiches. Today I’ll post about how we made our Chicken Sandwiches.
Not wanting to just sear our Chicken, we scoured our cabinets for ingredients, and hit pay dirt with some Ritz Crackers. The Ritz crackers would be the bread crumbs for a Milanese style chicken. We used about half a roll of crackers and smashed them with our hands in a bowl and then placed them on a place. We also used a bowl of flour, and another bowl with one egg.
We rinsed and patted dry the chicken and then dragged each breast first through the flour, then the egg, and finally through the Ritz crumbs. Adding a nice thin layer of Olive Oil to the pan, we lightly fried the breasts until nice and golden brown.
The rest of the recipe was followed exactly, and the aioli and Kale went very well with the sandwich. I’d also recommend a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot to complete the sandwich.
We will discuss how we prepared the Cod in our next post.
