Thin, breaded chicken breasts topped with a flavorful lime-butter sauce. Pounding the breasts doesn't take long and the resulting tender chicken is worth it.

Directions

  1. Coat chicken breasts with egg, and dip in bread crumbs. Place on a wire rack, and allow to dry for about 10 minutes.

This is the original contributor of the recipe (although my handle has changed). I had not used this recipe in years and decided to see if it was still here. I have to say I was rather shocked at the amount of butter myself! I took a reviewer's suggestion and substituted chicken broth for half of it, and that was great. Maybe you could even do 3/4 broth. My kids love this kind of chicken and its easy to leave the sauce off for picky ones. Enjoy!

I made this last night--it was a huge hit at my house. The sauce is excellent--tangy, zesty, summery, and creamy--it's a refreshing change! Because the breasts are breaded, they soak up the savory flavor. *Hint*: I substituted italian-seasoned/garlic bread crumbs and two stalkes of freshly chopped green onions for the plain bread crumbs and chives, which tasted scrumptious! This dish also reheats great!

Delicious, but greasy. After frying the chicken in oil, and then adding a butter sauce this dish was too greasy. However, it tasted great! Next time I'm going to try grilling my chicken and then pouring the sauce over to cut out some of the grease. Yum!
