A Nod To My Imaginary Parents

Easy Chicken Parmesan

My parents used to tease me about the fact that I loved Italian food so much by making outlandish claims that my real birth parents were Italian and that they had “picked me up” from the hospital… the details of their elaborate kidnapping was never revealed to me, but they assured me that this must be the reason why I loved pastas and pizzas so much. This claim sounds so much crueler when I put it down into words than it actually did when I was living it…

My taste for food has (thankfully) expanded since then and I now enjoy eating just about anything, from any type of cuisine… as long as it tastes good to me, I’m game. Though not to the extent of Andrew Zimmerman, but I’ll always have a special place in my heart (read: stomach) for Italian.

Flash forward to today, when I am to today, when I am supposed to attend an “International Potluck” dinner at my boss’s house. My boss and his wife both being Malaysian are going to be preparing traditional Malay dishes, which I will be very excited to try. There will (hopefully) be Indian cuisine and Chinese cuisine present as well… the Chinese cuisine being prepared probably by no less than 2 of my teammates. 2! This is why I decided to back out of the Chinese game and go my Italian route, trying my hand at a dish which may or may not be considered traditional Italian cuisine: Chicken Parmesan. I have never been one to order this dish too much when I am out at restaurants because I don’t find it terribly complex, but on the other hand, I have never tried my hand at it either. Wish me luck!

Here is a link to the recipe that I am trying: http://southernfood.about.com/od/chickenbreastrecipes/r/bl80517l.htm. Any 5-star recipe with “Easy” in the title gets a go from me.
