Summary

My friend Giuliana had just moved into her new house in Bologna (Italy) and invited me and my boyfriend to her house for dinner…despite the fact that the fridge was virtually empty. Giuliana stunned us with a dinner that looked like it came straight from an elegant ristorante. She had a litttle smile as I continued to ask her, how did you make it over and over again, and finally she told me…so…seeing as she doesn’t speak English, I’m posting it for her.

Instructions

  1. 1Beat the eggs in a smallish bowl.
  2. 2Grate the potatoes in another bow (add a bit of lemon to keep them from browning).
  3. 3Dip the chicken cubes into the eggs and then into the potatoes. Now re-dip them into the eggs and then the potatoes. Arrange them on a baking tray if you are going to oven bake them or heat the oil (olive oil is best) in a big pan if you want to fry them.
  4. 4Bake at 350 degrees until they are golden brown for about 15 minutes. If you’re decadent, you can fry these babies until they are a nice golden brown.
  5. 5While frying/baking, pour some balsamic vinegar into a bowl (about a quarter cup) and gradually mix in flour, being careful not to make lumps, until you get the right consistancy which can be creamier or more liquidy depending on how you like it.
  6. 6Serve with the sauce drizzled on top and on the plate to knock your friend’s socks off
