Farmer's Market Inspiration

I love the Farmer's Market in Memphis.  The sights, the sounds, the pet adoptions, the food trucks, the flowers, the colors, the people, the music.  It's awesome.  It's a little pricey, but that's part of knowing where your food comes from.  And if you look hard enough, you will find the best deals.  On this particular day I found 5 oz. of goat cheese for $6, comparable to my grocery store goat cheese prices, yet locally made, so WAY more fresh!  So I scooped it up and I made the best sandwich ever with it.

Here's What You Need:
Thinly sliced chicken cutlets (4 for 2 sandwiches)
2 eggs
Salt & Pepper
Pesto (any kind will work, I used Basil in this sandwich)
Goat Cheese
Ciabatta Bread

Here's What You Do:
Season your chicken with salt and pepper.  Break and beat your eggs in a bowl, and place flour and breadcrumbs in two separate bowls.  Take your chicken and lightly coat it in flour, then eggwash, then into the breadcrumbs.  In a hot, hot pan on medium high heat, cook your chicken until done, about 3 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of the chicken.  Just make sure it's done so you don't kill yourself.

While the chicken cooks, mix the goat cheese with the basil pesto and add salt and pepper to taste.  Toast your ciabatta bread in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes.  Spread the pesto/goat cheese spread on both sides of the bread, top with chicken and go to town. 

And while your at it, check out your town's local farmer's market.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone! craigslist cincinnati
