Pound chicken to an even thickness and bread the chicken in the flour, egg wash and breadcrumbs.

Heat a large heavy bottomed pan (preferably cast iron). Put in enough La Padella ® to have an even 1/2 to 3/4 inch of oil and heat until shimmering.

Pan fry breaded chicken breasts until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from pan and drain on a tray with paper or sport towels. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of ground fennel seed.

Tomato Jam (can be made ahead of time)

Sweat garlic, shallot, ginger with oil just until translucent. Add fennel, red pepper flakes, and ground pink peppercorns. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar. Add sugar and tomato, simmer, stirring occasionally.

Cook until mixture reduces and becomes thick and jammy, about 30-45 minutes. Allow to completely cool.

Zucchini Ribbons 

Ribbon zucchini with a vegetable sheeter or ribbon cutter. Briefly heat the zucchini in La Padella® for 30-45 seconds to slightly soften but keep al dente.


Place zucchini ribbons on plate in an interesting way, next plate the chicken breast followed by a few spoonfuls of tomato jam.

Place one piece of burrata per serving on top of the chicken. Then finish with a pinch of salt, ground pink peppercorns, and drizzle with TRULY® Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Garnish plate with ground fennel seed and basil leaves.
