My mom was here last week, as I've said before, and we were both quite interested in eating delicious food during her visit. I decided that I needed to "WOW" her with something, and this chicken parmigiana, from Tyler Florence, fit the bill.
(Please ignore the disgusting exterior of my pan . . . my dishwasher suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.)
While the recipe looks really complicated and time consuming, it's not too bad. It takes some time, yes, but the payoff is wonderfully crispy chicken underneath a sumptuous sauce and perfectly melty mozzarella. It doesn't get much better than that in my book.
This is definitely one of those dishes that I keep in my arsenal to impress people; it's amazing how fancy people think you are when you whip out a little fresh mozzarella. I'm thinking of trying it at my next job interview.
Mom, the BF and I enjoyed our chicken parmigiana over spaghetti, and with herbed garlic bread (which I'll do a post on later) and a salad. YUM!
While I know a lot of people think my 99% black and grey wardrobe is a snoozefest, I think that when you jazz a monochromatic wardrobe up with shoes like these:

how can you go wrong?! Fur is FUN, peeps!
