Chicken Francese

Dinner doesn’t have to be difficult. Chicken Francese is an easy meal that is packed with flavor. This chicken recipe I found on the Salty Marshmallow web site comes together in only 30 minutes. Serve it with pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes and green beans or a side salad.

You Will Need:

2 Large boneless skinless chicken breasts Sliced horizontally to make four thin pieces
2 Large eggs beaten
2 Tablespoons milk
¾ Cup All Purpose Flour
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
4 tablespoons Butter, divided
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
½ cup Dry White Wine
1 ½ cups Chicken Broth
1 lemon Juiced
4 lemon Sliced
1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Parsley, optional

What to Do:

1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk; set aside. In a second bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons butter and oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Press chicken into flour mixture, then through beaten egg, allowing excess egg to drip off into bowl.

3. Dredge chicken through flour once again, shaking off excess flour. Reserve 1 tablespoon leftover flour.

4. Place chicken in hot skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to a plate to rest.

5. Pour white wine into skillet and deglaze, scraping brown bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon. Allow wine to reduce slightly for 1 to 2 minutes, then whisk remaining butter, broth, lemon juice, and reserved flour into skillet.

6. Reduce heat to medium-low and return chicken to skillet, topping each with a slice of lemon. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes, spooning sauce over chicken frequently, until it is heated through. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and garnish with parsley before serving.
