To whip up this delicious Monday-through-Friday treat, the Barefoot Contessa either makes bread crumbs from leftover homemade bread (of course) or uses the premade stuff. Other ingredients in the surprisingly simple recipe are boneless, skinless chicken breasts, salad greens, Garten’s lemon vinaigrette recipe and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The best part? It only takes about 30 minutes to make.

Ina, you had us at bread crumbs.
