A great recipe for having people over! You can use frozen chicken cutlets for a cheaper option than fresh cutlets.

How to Make Chicken Francese

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the chicken breasts side by side on a cutting board and lay a piece of plastic wrap over them. Pound the chicken breasts with a flat meat mallet, until they are about 1/4-inch thick.
  • 2Put some flour in a shallow platter and season with a fair amount of salt and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly. In a wide bowl, beat the eggs with 3 tbsp. water to make an egg wash. Heat the oil over medium-high flame in a large skillet.
  • 3Dredge both sides of the chicken cutlets in the seasoned flour, and then dip them in the egg wash to coat completely, letting the excess drip off.
  • 4When the oil is nice and hot, add the cutlets and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden, turning once. Remove the chicken cutlets to a large platter in a single layer to keep warm.
  • 5Toss the lemon slices into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add the wine, broth, and lemon juice, simmer for 5 minutes to reduce the sauce slightly. Roll the butter in some flour and add it to the skillet, this will thicken the sauce. Stir to incorporate and dissolve the flour.
  • 6Reduce the heat to medium-low and return the chicken to the pan; place the lemon slices on top of the cutlets. Simmer gently for 2 minutes to heat the chicken through. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
