Pecorino crusted chicken with arugula and mixed baby green salad.
It’s a gorgeous Sunday morning. The windows are opens and the crisp air fills the rooms. The birds are singing welcoming a new day as I admire the gorgeous full moon that is still gracing the sky with her presence. I love this time of day.
The house is still so quiet, perfect time to plan my day and week, time to catch up.
We had a busy week and a couple of nights ago we prepared this new dish, Pecorino Crusted Chicken with Arugula and Mixed Green Salad. Fast, great flavors blending well together and the salad is a must. Crisp and bitter arugula mixes well with the baby green that are a bit sweet and with the mustard …. I am letting your taste buds enjoy the combination.
