My daughter Casey once had a friend who was a sous chef and lived with us for a while. He would make this dish and serve it over thin spaghetti. It became a family favorite.

How to Make Chicken Francaise Over Spaghetti

Step-by-Step

  1. Create a workstation with your egg, flour and chicken cutlets and begin by dipping chicken slices individually into the egg and then flour and begin to fry gently in a fry pan, (salt and pepper if desired.) Place aside until all are done.
    This may be a good time to mix your sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and place on low heat.
  2. If you will be serving this over or with pasta, begin a boiling pot of salted water and place spaghetti in water when it begins to boil and cook for about 12 minutes or to you taste. Drain in a colander. I then like to place my pasta in a casserole, top and mix with a little sauce and then arrange chicken pieces on top. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken and pasta.
  3. I like to put this in a 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, then remove to serve. Before serving, I place lemon slices and chopped parsley on top for presentation. Another great one dish meal or serve with a salad or green vegetable!
