Fattoush with Chicken



Another recipe from the Binder. Middle-Eastern Bread Salad (Fattoush) with Chicken. I do not even know where this recipe clipping is from. Maybe Better Home and Garden but it could have been Women's Day. I made this when we were first married, 26 years ago. Tonight I added Breaded Chicken Cutlets, yes those Chicken Cutlets, to the salad. I made the Chicken Cutlets yesterday while I was baking the Calzones. We are experiencing something of a heat wave. Not really a wave, more of a slap in the face. Oppressive heat. So the key is to keep the oven off if possible. When the oven is on you make good use of it.

When I posted this week's menu, tonight's dinner did not receive an overwhelming response. But I knew it would be well received and it was. Did I see someone going back for thirds!!! Oh, that was me!
