Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 10 min



1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 to 2 pounds total), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness

2/3 cup white wine or dry vermouth

4 tablespoons lemon juice



1. In a shallow dish, combine flour, parsley, and salt; mix well. In another shallow dish, beat eggs.

2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Dip chicken in flour mixture then in eggs, coating completely.

3. Sauté chicken, in batches if necessary, 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden, adding more butter as needed. Add any remaining butter, vermouth, and lemon juice to pan; mix well and return cooked chicken to skillet.

4. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken and no pink remains in chicken. Serve chicken with sauce.
