This is one of my favorite chicken dishes. Gotta love lemon to love this dish. This dish is very aromatic and bursting with tangy lemon flavor. The chicken has a wonderful light batter that it is dipped in & makes it nice and crispy brown when cooked on a medium heat.
I serve this with noodles or rice and can be served with steamed broccoli or asparagus.

How to Make Chicken Francaise

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat 2 tbsp. of cooking oil in a frying pan. Take your chicken and drudge in flour (add your salt and pepper to flour). Shake of excess flour. Beat your 2 eggs in a bowl. When oil is hot dip your flour coated chicken into the beaten egg and shake off the excess egg. Place in your pan to begin to cook. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side depending on thickness of chicken. You want you chicken to have a nicely browned and crisp outer coating.
    Keep your cooked chicken warm by placing in a dish and cover with tinfoil or put in a warmed oven to keep crisp.
  • 2While chicken is cooking in another pan melt your butter over medium heat add your minced garlic. Add your chicken broth, wine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and continue to stir until it reaches the thickness of sauce you desire. If you want it a thicker sauce add more butter. Add your sliced lemons a minute or two before you remove the sauce.
  • 3Now plate your chicken and pour the sauce over the top and make sure to put a few lemons over the chicken as well. Garnish with the parsley or basil. Time to enjoy your meal. :-)
