More Yummy Chicken!

Easy Enough To Make On A Busy Weeknight!

I am so excited that I found another easy and delicious chicken recipe. It is very well known, but I had never made the traditional version before. I am so glad I finally did. It was so good. Rich and super tasty, and the best part is that it was so easy to make. It took only minutes to prepare and minutes to cook. This is my kind of recipe!

Chicken Francaise
Recipe by

1 Lb. chicken cutlets, pounded thin
Egg, beaten with salt, pepper & 1/4 c. milk (I used one egg and not quite a 1/4 c. of milk)
1 lemon, halved
Freshly chopped parsley
1 1/2 sticks of butter (You know I didn't use all that butter-I used about 6 Tablespoons total)

Dredge chicken in flour, then dip in egg mixture and again in flour. Put in refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour to set. Chicken will be sticky.

Melt 1 stick butter in large skillet (I melted 4 T.). When it starts to bubble, squeeze 1/2 lemon into butter and quickly add cutlets. Sprinkle with parsley. Turn and brown the other side. Remove to a warm platter. Melt other 1/2 stick butter (I used the other 2 T.) with juice of the other half of lemon. Pour over the top of cutlets and serve immediately.

Enjoy. I know I did!

this is one of my favorite "go to company during the week" meals. Serve on a bed of wildrice, or fresh spinach. Tasty and easy I agree.

Doodles, It is delicious enough to serve to company and the wild rice is a great idea.

This looks really good. I am feeling like chicken a lot lately. I would have to cut the butter too. Thanks for letting me know it was just as good.

I love the slightly lemon flavor that you can notice when you bite into this dish. It's so easy yet nobody would know it from the taste!!
