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

  1. Heat 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.
  2. While 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.
  3. Now 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. :-)
