Serves: 2 to 4
  • 4 pieces of thinly sliced meat (chicken breast, turkey, veal, pork, beef)
  • fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • basil leaves,
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • coating for the meat –
  • 1½ cups panko bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten with a teaspoon of water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • flour, for dredging
  1. If you can’t find the meat thinly sliced (scaloppine style), don’t fret. Buy the meat, slice it and then use a meat tenderizer and pound out to ¼-inch thick.
  2. In a bowl mix panko crumbs with oregano and season with sea salt and pepper. Take ½ a cup of flour and add to a dinner plate. You should have your dredging stations all set. First, dredge the meat in the flour to lightly coat then dust off any excess flour. Dip the floured meat into the bowl of beaten eggs and let drip. Next dredge the egg-soaked meat into the panko crumb mixture. Repeat process until all meat is coated.
  3. In a frying pan, over medium-high heat, add ¼ cup of olive oil. Place two pieces of the meat and fry 1 to 2 minutes or until golden. Flip and cook until golden. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat process for remaining meat.
  4. To assemble, place one slice of scaloppine on a baking tray and add a slice of prosciutto, basil leaves to cover the prosciutto and sliced mozzarella cheese to cover. Place another scaloppine on top. Repeat process for remaining scaloppine. Add a dollop of butter on top of each scaloppine and cook in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, slice and serve with bell pepper salad.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: The traditional meat used for scaloppine is veal but you can use other meats. I chose 4 thin cut pork chops (I cut out the bone), place the meat between waxed paper and pound until ¼-inch thick (roughly). The pepper salad consisted of sliced bell peppers sautéed in olive oil with garlic and chopped green olives. So tasty and delicious you’ll want to serve this more than once. Enjoy!
