Rachael Ray: Winter Milanese Recipe
Based on classic veal milanese, Bobby Flay called this “one of the most perfect dishes in food." Check out the Chicken Milanese Recipe he prepared with Rachael Ray, with a winter-style kale topping.
Bobby Flay can be seen on another new Food Network series, The Worst Cooks in America, coming to the cable channel on February 17 2014.
Chicken breast is popular, but it is going to need some flavor to stand out. Rachael Ray said that you should get all the air out of your freezer bags so you can store chicken without it getting dreaded freezer burn. Date it and don’t store it for longer than three to six months.
