“Chicken Parmesan” & Bruschetta

CJ is Italian and he likes to judge Italian restaurants by how their waiters pronounce “bruschetta.”

The correct Italian pronunciation is “brus-ketta,” but most people in the US just say “bru-shetta.”

Whenever we try a new Italian restaurant, (we went to Viaggio over the weekend) he orders “brus-ketta,” and the waiter always responds, “Sure, the bru-shetta.”

It drives CJ crazy. We’ve been to 1 restaurant where it was pronounced right.

Anyways, I decided to try my hand at making bruschetta.

I also made “Chicken Parmesan” based off of Iowa Girl Eat’s recipe. I put “Chicken Parmesan” in quotes because it doesn’t actually involve breaded chicken or parmesan (she suggested using mozzarella).
