We’re always looking for fool-proof dishes that we can count on for a delicious and memorable meal. Have I got just the dish for you! It’s my Momma’s recipe for a very quick and easy Chicken Scaloppine. This is the dish that put her famous restaurant in Lake Tahoe on the map and once you taste it you’ll see why. At that time, back in 1955, she was preparing this dish with veal, but we have found that slices of chicken breast pounded into tender medallions are as flavorful as the veal. I’m so excited to share Momma’s Scaloppine with you because this is one of the gourmet dishes that you pay a lot of money for at Italian restaurants, and now you can make it at home anytime you want! It really only takes about five minutes to make once you have all of your items prepped, which is an absolute must for this recipe because it will sauté up so quickly. This was the first recipe we chose when creating our first cookbook, Momma & Me & You, and it was the first time Momma ever shared her recipe from D’Atri’s Italian Restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Buon Appetito!

I rarely throw out old cookbooks. On the contrary, the older and more well-worn they are, the better. But recently, I had to toss out a cookbook that I found at a garage sale only because it had completely fallen apart at the seams. It was from 1964 and simply called “Delicious Asian Recipes.” This tattered little book served its purpose though. Out of it came two of my favorite dressings. Both go splendidly with a refreshing and healthful chicken salad that’s perfect for spring and summer!
