This weekend, we enjoyed one of my favorite dishes in the whole world… Pasta Vodka with Fried Chicken Cutlets! I even surprised myself when I sunk my teeth into this, and asked myself why I didn’t make this more often. Remember that Ecce Panis bread I talked about the other day? I slathered a little bit of garlic butter on the leftover pieces, and it made for some awesome garlic bread to go with it. Mmmmm!

Above all else, the best part about having this as a meal is the leftovers! Leftover chicken cutlets make the perfect blank canvases for sandwiches.

Another yummy meal – a chicken cutlet with melted cheese on top of leftover Ecce Panis bread.. My mouth is just watering! You can view the whole shopping trip here on google+

Tenderize each piece and place in the buttermilk.Let it rest for a few hours up to overnight. When ready, make a bowl for each ingredient - flour, egg and breadcrumbs. Season each bowl with salt and pepper. Pull chicken from buttermilk, then in flour, then egg, and finally the breadcrumbs. Fry in canola oil and drain on a paper towel.

First, I cut up my chicken


I cut through the thick part of the chicken breast to make 2 thin slivers of meat.


I divided each of those 2 pieces in half also.


Ever play whack-a-mole?


Now it’s ready to soak in the buttermilk!


I got all my breading stations ready.. Starting with the chicken in the buttermilk, flour, egg and finally breadcrumbs. I put an empty plate on the end so I have a place for the breaded pieces, until I cook them.


Getting a coat of breadcrumbs!


Cooking in canola oil, on medium-high.


Once I got my chicken all fried up, I let it sit and drain on the paper towels until I could get my pasta ready. I did my best to keep it warm by tin-foiling it until it was time to eat.

Believe it or not, the pasta part was easy!


I started with the butter, olive oil and garlic and let that melt over medium-high for 2-3 min. Add 1 cup of vodka and let it cook down for a few minutes.

I used my favorite tomatoes! Blend it up in the blender and add it to the saucepan.


Add the chicken stock and let it cook. Add in cream and when it begins to bubble, add the cooked pasta and mix it up!


Don’t forget to have some cooked pasta ready to mix in when the sauce is ready!


Mmmmm, It’s ready!!
