4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 tablespoons salted butter, divided

1/2 cup white wine

1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken stock

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 lemon thinly sliced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Place chicken breasts on a cutting board. Slice horizontally into 2 thin cutlets. Set aside.

In a shallow bowl, combine the all purpose flour, kosher salt and pepper. Set aside 2 teaspoons of the seasoned flour for the sauce.

In another shallow bowl, whisk the eggs.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon salted butter.

Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, and then in the beaten eggs.

Sauté the battered chicken in batches until lightly golden brown. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the chicken cutlets. The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees F on an instant read digital thermometer.

Transfer the chicken to a plate and lightly cover with foil.

Carefully wipe out the sauté pan with a few paper towels and return to the stovetop over medium low to medium heat.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons for salted butter to the sauté pan. When the butter has melted, whisk in the reserved 2 teaspoons of the flour used for for dredging the chicken. Cook for about 30 seconds.

Stir in the white wine, reduced sodium chicken stock, and lemon juice. Bring the sauce barely to a boil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Season the sauce with kosher salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the pan and ladle some of the sauce over the top. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Sprinkle the chicken with the parsley and serve with lemon slices.
