Posted by Milford Kitchen on Jun 22nd 2023


4 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

2 cups torn sourdough bread

2 TBSP Milford Spice Company's An Evening in Tuscany spice

1 pound chicken cutlets or tenders

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated parmesan

6 cups mixed greens

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup mozzarella balls

1-2 avocados, diced

4 slices cooked thick-cut bacon, crumbled

For the Pesto Tahini Dressing

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

2 TBSP basil pesto

1-2 TBSP tahini

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

kosher salt and black pepper

red pepper flakes


Preheat the oven to 425° F. Toss together 2 tablespoons olive oil, the bread, 1 tablespoon An Evening in Tuscany seasoning, and a pinch of salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until toasted.

Meanwhile, place the Panko, parmesan, and 1 tablespoon An Evening in Tuscany seasoning in a shallow bowl.

Dredge both sides of the chicken through the Panko, pressing to adhere by using your fist to really make the crumbs stick. Place the chicken on a plate.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes.

Flip the chicken and cook until golden brown on the other side, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and season with salt.

Slice into thin strips.

To make the salad. Combine the greens, tomatoes, parmesan, avocados, and bacon in a salad bowl.

To make the dressing. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper.

Toss the chicken in with the salad. Add a little of the dressing.
