Pollo Milanesa torta

You'll need

3 tsp cumin seeds 150 gm soft white sourdough breadcrumbs 1 cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped 2 tsp chilli powder 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 chicken breasts, halved diagonally 2 eggs, lightly beaten 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 4 soft white bread rolls To serve: mayonnaise, baby gem lettuce, feta, sliced jalapeños (optional) and lime wedges   Tomato, lime and avocado salsa 3 vine-ripened tomatoes, seeds removed, coarsely chopped avocados, coarsely chopped Juice of 3 limes ½ cup (firmly packed) coriander, coarsely chopped ½ Spanish onion, finely chopped


  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 170C. Dry-roast cumin seeds (20 seconds). Crush in a mortar and pestle, transfer to a bowl, add breadcrumbs, parsley, chilli and garlic, season to taste, toss to combine.

  • Pound chicken pieces between 2 pieces of baking paper with a meat mallet to 5mm thick. Dip chicken in eggwash, dip in breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat evenly, then repeat so chicken has two layers of breadcrumbs.
