In this video, you’ll see how to make a simple chicken dish with a wonderful white wine, lemon juice, and butter sauce. “Chicken French,” it’s not really French. It’s more Italian in inspiration. But okay, it actually hails from Rochester, New York, where it’s a staple in Italian-American restaurants. To make it, you’ll simply dredge thin strips of chicken breast in seasoned flour and egg, quickly fry them in olive oil and butter. Then it’s sauce time, which means adding white wine or dry sherry, lemon juice, and broth to the skillet and reducing, and then finishing with a little butter and fresh Italian parsley. It’s so easy! Spoon the tangy sauce over the moist, tender, tasty chicken. And stand by for raves! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Chicken French. It’s delicious yet easy, frugal yet fancy; this simple dish has it all. See more Chef John videos >>
