“This is an easy version of a family favorite in my house. I make it often after work. Great served over white rice with a nice vegetable, like haricot vert or salad.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Season 2 cups flour with salt and pepper. Coat chicken cutlets in seasoned flour, shaking off excess, then dip in egg.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry chicken until golden brown on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to a plate. Melt butter in the same skillet; cook and stir remaining 2 tablespoons flour in butter for 5 minutes, then add chicken broth and lemon juice. Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet. Continue simmering until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 more minutes.
  3. Serve chicken with parsley sprigs and lemon 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.
