Chicken Parm and Rigatoni alla vodka
Robin requested this for dinner, so last night I took out what was left of a bag of frozen chicken breasts. As an aside, I hate those frozen breasts, they look nice and plump when frozen, but defrosted, they give up so much liquid, that they shrink considerably. They are often on sale for some ridiculously cheap price and I've fallen prey to the deal one too many times. No More. I'm going to MI on Thursday and Bone in Breasts are on sale for 99cents a lb. I'm just going to bone my own( wish me luck).
So, I breaded these up. I used my last 2 eggs on the cake I made( next post) so I dipped in some buttermilk. It seemed to work ok. I made a killer sauce using 2 big cans of San Marzano tomatoes. I covered the breasts in half the sauce( that sounds kinda obscene) and then added some grey goose and half and half( what I had on hand, I didnt want to run out for heavy cream). I also didnt have any penne, so I used rigatoni. Robin proclaimed it excellent!!
