Veal Or Chicken Over Pasta Recipe For Drunks

Sometimes, as a bachelor, you not only have to cook for yourself, you have to cook for someone with a vagina.

Because face it, while you’d like to take her out to dinner, sometimes you are broke. Plus, when you take her out to dinner you still have to talk her back to your place afterwards. If you cook for her she’s already there.

And that’s a good thing.

So, here is a good date dinner that’s way easy to cook, but is also sorta romantic.


Step One: Purchase bread crumbs, worchester sauce, eggs, pasta, two lemons, a bottle of cheap white wine, rosemary and thyme and either eight veal cutlets or three boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Step One And A Half: If you got the chicken because you didn’t know if the girl would freak out about being served veal, you need to take a knife and cut the chicken into thin pieces. The veal cutlets should be the right size when you buy them.

Step Two: Crack two eggs into a bowl. Throw three shakes of worchester sauce into the bowl and stir it all up.

Step Three: Put the breadcrumbs onto a plate spread out.

Step Four: Dip each cutlet or chicken piece into the egg/worchester sauce mixture and then into the bread crumbs.

Step Five: Put oil into the pan. Throw some thyme and rosemary into the pan with it. Turn oven on to a fairly high heat.

Step Six: Put each cutlet into the oil one at a time. Turn them fairly quickly so none of the bread crumbs stick to the pan. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice onto each towards the end.

Step Seven: Put cooked cutlets onto a plate covered with paper towels so the oil can soak off of them.

Step Eight: Put about 250ml of the white wine into the pan, which should be filled with oil and stuff from the cooking. Squeeze whatever lemon juice you have left into the pan as well and stir it all together. Once it boils, turn down to low heat.

Step Nine: Cook pasta.

Step Ten: Pour the cooked lemon/wine sauce over the pasta.

Step 11: Eat!
