salt and ground black pepper to taste
thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets
lemon, cut into wedges
This was absolutely fabulous! My daughter said, "Mom you are an amazing cook, please make this next week" Everyone cleaned their plates! I actually only used one large chicken breast and made 4 cutlets, it was perfect for us. Will make again and again!
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! From start to finish this took less than an hour- perfect for after work. The key is fresh lemons and fresh parsley.
CHANGES: We did melt the butter in the same skillet, but poured out the excess oil first.
Also threw the parsley in within the last 5 minutes of the chicken simmering.
Served with angel hair pasta and made more than enough sauce to coat the pasta. This recipe is a KEEPER.
My children really thought this came from a restaurant. I followed the recipe to the letter and this chicken came out perfectly!
Just made this for dinner. Picky 6 year old asked if I could make this for dinner every night! It was very good and easy, so of course I said YES! I used almost 2 lbs of chicken and found that 2 cups of flour is more than enough. Served it over mashed potatoes or spaghetti - same picky 6yo does not like spaghetti - gotta try to please everyone : )
Easy to make and flavor is good. Too much fat in the recipe though. I cut it back quite a bit for my 1.25 pounds of chicken.
Easy and delicious try it you will love it ,,,,,,,,,And reasonable cost
This is absolutely the best chicken Franaise recipe that I have found and I have been looking for some time. It doesn't look anything like the picture though. The picture shows almost a gravy like appearance. I have recommended this recipe to several people that are also going to try it. Thank you, GCBenezra for posting this. My family loves it!!!
To die for! I followed the advice of others and tweaked this a little myself too. I added to the flour: paprika, grated lemon and garlic salt. I coated the chicken in flour, then egg, then flour again. Then I browned it and placed it in a baking dish. I placed lemon slices on the chicken while it baked and meanwhile, made the sauce. When I was making the sauce, I realized I had the ends of two lemons left with fruit in them so I threw them into the sauce while it cooked. The kids were a little put off by the lemony flavor, but my husband and I loved it! Definitely a keeper!
