Preparing something milanese (or milanesa) style means dredging thin slices of meat in eggs and seasoned bread crumbs and frying them. It’s pretty foolproof, plus it’s superquick, making it the perfect weeknight dinner. From crispy lamb chops to spicy chicken, here are six fantastic ways to make milanese.
1. Lamb Chop Milanese with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
In this fun twist on the classic, chef Marcelo Betancourt pounds double-cut lamb chops until thin, then fries them until golden and crisp.
2. Veal Milanese with Eggplant and Onions
These crispy veal cutlets are served with tender roasted eggplant and sweet onion.
