Milanese Chicken in Mushroom & Ham Sauce:
La Piccata Milanese

What's the big idea?

Fried slices of chicken in a gravy enriched with ham and mushrooms - simple but extremely tasty!
Try to use pancetta or Italian ham if you can get it, and more unusual flavoursome mushroom varieties such as portabella or chestnut.
Serve simply with boiled or mashed potatoes and a green vegetable of your choice.
