Chicken Milanese with spaghetti and tomato sauce

This dish might seem as a wiener schnitzel with spaghetti and ketchup but this is definitely not true. The devil lies in details 🙂

For example, the chicken Milanese is made with Parmesan cheese and the tomato sauce is made from fresh tomatoes. Altogether it has so much flavor and textures that it is very hard to describe. So the only thing which you can do is to try it by yourself. You will not regret that decision for sure. 🙂
