Crispy Chicken with Arugula, Parmesan, and Balsamic – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Crispy, juicy, tangy and salty – those are the flavors in this chicken recipe.  I like to keep things simple when I cook, and you can make a delicious dinner with pantry ingredients, and a few additional things; like chicken and arugula.  Creating crispy chicken is as easy as dusting it with a bit of white rice or gluten-free flour, along with a few dried spices, and sauteing it in a pan for delicate crust.  I prefer dark meat chicken, but you can substitute white meat, just cut down on cooking time by a few minutes.  Fresh arugula makes a pleasant bed of bitterness to contrast the warm crispy chicken, and a simple dusting of Parmesan cheese adds a tad of saltiness to the dish.  A good balsamic vinegar is something I recommend as a staple to any pantry because it’s usefulness is endless, especially when drizzled over this dish.  The simplicity of this food is what makes it pop — let the ingredients speak for themselves.

To Prepare:

  1. Remove chicken from packaging, and cut each thigh into thirds.  In a small bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, salt and pepper.  Dust chicken on both sides with dry rub.
  2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons oil.  After 2 minutes, add chicken in batches and crisp on both sides, about 6 minutes per side.  Remove and place on a plate in a low oven, to keep warm until all chicken is cooked.  Add more oil if necessary.
  3. On a platter, board or plates, place arugula.  Top with warm chicken and dust with Parmesan.  Drizzle balsamic over top and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
