Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Sure, we”ve all pondered the question but at the end of the day—who gives a damn? Regardless, they are both delicious. Of course, they are even better when fried and breaded. There are few people I know (meaning I know few vegetarians) that do not enjoy a fried egg or chicken. So, my girlfriend realized she could please anybody (that matters) by combining a fried egg and chicken in a dish. Bonus: she added some greens and can call it salad and healthy.
The girlfriend always cringed when I ordered my fried eggs at the diner, but that”s all changed thanks to this new concoction. The dish has a balance of texture—tender, juicy chicken, crispy arugula and asparagus, and a savory runny egg that acts as the perfect dressing. Onward to the flavor: the breaded chicken offers a solid foundation for the pseudo-salad with Italian seasonings. Next, the “salad” portion of the dish includes the peppery arugula, refreshing asparagus, and lemon juice finishes it off with a surprisingly perfect balance. Finally, the dish is crowned with a fried egg (or runny egg, dippy egg, whatever you choose to call it). Break the egg and enjoy the savory flavor of the fried egg in every bite.Read More›
