Yes, Crumbed Chicken Puttanesca. That is what it is. No, I am not swearing just using some Italian lingo here. Italians just know how people. That is all.
Puttanesca is a basic sauce for pastas, adapted throughout the years, but mainly from Italian origin. It is a tomato and herb sauce with loads of garlic flavored with anchovies, capers and olives. Salty. Real salty.
My Puttanesca sauce however doesn’t have the anchovies or the capers. Otherwise hubby would through me with it. The olives are pushing it too. But I guessed he could just pick those out. Men…
Normally Puttanesca sauces are meant for pastas. My recipe of Crumbed Chicken Puttanesca are a perfect dinner idea and consists of crumbed chicken breasts, smothered in flavoursome Puttanesca sauce, with fresh basil, black olives and grated parmesan. Fantastico!
I served my Crumbed Chicken Puttanesca with roasted potato wedges and it was really good. This recipe is enough for four adults; I counted a breast for each person. I hope you try this Italian favorite, and if you have some varieties of your own I would luuurve to hear it! Buon Appetito!
