Is it possible to make a restaurant-style dish like Chicken Francese at home? You bet it is. Our easy recipe for this lemony flavored fresh-tasting chicken main dish is a cinch.

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.
