Milanesas de Pollo

This is one of our weekly meals here at home, Chicken cutlets with sweet mashed potatoes and greens, super yum, kids love it, I bake my chicken to avoid using more oil.

Ingredients for the chicken

4 chicken breasts
3 eggs, beaten
Bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
Fresh mozzarella, sliced or shredded
1 cup of tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of oregano

Ingredients for the sweet mashed potatoes

3 big sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of milk
salt and pepper to taste

For the Milanesas.

Place your chicken breast on a chopping board ( I like to pre wash my chicken)

Cut each breast in half and remove visible fat.

Cover your chicken with plastic.

Now tenderize it! go for it!

When done, season with salt and pepper to taste. Now line up your beaten eggs, bread crumbs on a dish and have a clean dish ready sort of like this.

Take a piece of chicken, dunk it in the egg mix on both sides.

Now place it on the bread crumbs, cover it up and press gently, I like to turn it over to make sure both sides are covered up.

Place your chicken on an oven safe dish that has been drizzled with some olive oil, drizzle a bit more of oil on top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes on one side. In the mean time slice your fresh mozzarella.

Now bring your chicken out of the oven, flip it over, add tomato sauce.

Some fresh mozzarella and top it off with oregano. Back into the oven for 10-15min or until cheese is melted.

Let's move onto the Sweet Mashed potatoes.

Wash your sweet potatoes and peel them.

 Compost all your scraps!

Chop your sweet potatoes and add them in a pot with boiling water.

Cook until tender. Drain water and start mashing!

Add butter to taste, I add 1 tablespoon you can add more.

Now add your milk, salt and pepper to taste and mix some more.

Serve HOT! with your Milanesas and some greens! Enjoy :)
