Chicken Cutlets the Blue Bloods Way


I’m a huge fan of “Blue Bloods!”  I’ve watched it faithfully from the get-go back in 2010, and adore the Reagan family!





Owing that I'm a cookbook junkie, and a fan of the show, The Blue Bloods Cookbook is right up my alley.  It includes great recipes, with stories about the show and cast sprinkled around…






The family dinner scene is a part of every episode:

Bridget Moynahan - who plays Assistant DA Erin Reagan relates in the cookbook, how to make eating look natural take after take, and hopefully not talk or chew with a mouthful of food:  she smashes her food around on the plate.  

Amy Carlson - who plays Linda Regan - is always cutting her food, while Tom Selleck - the Police Commissioner - has the best strategy, he forever butters his roll. He knows a good thing; it’s easy, natural, and he has made sure he’s the only one on the set using that tactic!  





As for the cookbook, there are so many great recipes to try ~ Four Cheese Mac-and-Cheese,  Yankee Bean Soup, Rumaki, and Drugstore Chocolate Cake. 

Chicken Cutlets was my first one to try ~ Bill and I thought it was an ideal delicious way to dress chicken up! 


 
 









Chicken Cutlets
Printable recipe

Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup flour
3 large eggs
1½ cups bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ cup olive oil

Method:

Sandwich each chicken breast between two sheets of heavy-duty wax paper.
Using a kitchen mallet or the bottom of a cast-iron pan, pound the breasts until they are each about ¼ inch thick.
Season each cutlet with salt and pepper.
Set up a breading station:  
Put the flour in one shallow dish. 
Beat eggs with a teaspoon of water and put them into a second shallow dish.
Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan and oregano in a third shallow dish.
Dredge a cutlet in flour and shake off excess.
Dunk it in the egg until it is well coated and let excess drip off.
Press it into bread crumbs all around, so that it’s coated on both sides.
Shake off excess and transfer the cutlet to a clean plate.
Repeat with remaining cutlets.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
Cook cutlets until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
Work in batches, if necessary, to avoid overcrowding the skillet, and add more oil if needed.
Transfer to platter and serve.



ENJOY!

  3. Pam, Blue Bloods isn't on our TV 'radar' even though Laurie has always really liked Tom Selleck. However, I do like this chicken cutlet recipe. I've grilled chicken 'tenders' but I've never really created 'cutlets' from chicken breasts. Don't know why but it's now on the menu! Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. Definitely a big fan of Blue Bloods here, too. Bridget M. graduated from our high school, so it's great to see her on t.v. :) Now that you mention it, Tom Selleck is always buttering a roll. I never gave it much thought.

    It's a balmy 37°F & snowing. Chicken is yummy any time of the year!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
