Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Italian works really well with Verdicchio, Trebbiano, and Chianti. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. The Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

Ricasoli Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico

Dark ruby color, with lots of chocolate, berry and vanilla aromas, this is full-bodied and velvety, with lots of fruit and a long, succulent finish. A beauty from a great vintage.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Start with cutting your chicken breasts into halves. Season both sides of your chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge each breast in flour. Be sure to coat each side and the edges.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. In a small sauce pan, warm your pasta sauce.
  5. Lightly beat 1 egg in a bowl. Put about 1 cup of bread crumbs in another bowl and season with a little garlic powder. Take your floured chicken and dip into the egg wash, coating all over, then into the bread crumbs. Bread all four chicken breasts.
  6. Put the chicken into the skillet and cook for three minutes on each side, or until golden brown on each side. Remove the chicken to a baking sheet. Finish the chicken in the 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. {Depending on how thick your chicken breasts, add more or less time.}
  7. In a large pot, boil the water needed for your pasta. We used angel hair which only takes 3-5 minutes to cook. But if youre using a penne or something denser youll need more time for the pasta.
  8. Pull the chicken out and top with mozzarella cheese, put back into the oven to melt the cheese.
  9. Plate the pasta first, topped with chicken and the cover with sauce. If youre feeling zesty add a little fresh shaved Pecorino-Romano or grated Parmesan cheese!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Many people will tell you to remove the skin on your chicken to cut down on fat. This is true, but if you like the taste, leave it on! You're only gaining a little fat for a lot of flavor. Plus, a little over half of the fat in chicken skin is monounsatured fat (that's a heart-healthy kind) and the notion that saturated fat is unhealthy is being questioned too. So in our opinion: dig in, skin and all!

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • Depending on the recipe, you might be able to substitute almond meal or flaxseed for the breadcrumbs to reduce the carbohydrate content and up the nutrition. For example, almond meal works well for breading, while ground flaxseed can help with binding.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.
