Scallopini – Chicken with Mushrooms
Scallopini  – 
Pollo con Funghi
by James Belardo

There’s more than one way to cook a cutlet, and scallopini is one of our favorites. To make scallopini, use chicken or veal cutlets; flatten’em, flour’em and spice’em. This classic chicken scallopini goes well with rice, potatoes or pasta.

4 chicken cutlets
1/2 onion

6. Add the chicken stock and let reduce to about 50% (if adding peas, this is where you would toss them in)

Scallopini is best served with a nice vegetable and rice or potatoes. A light vegetable-based pasta would also work well.
