While this is my mom's recipe, I had completely forgotten about it and just recently found a copy of this fantastic dish. The rich sauce and wonderful batter that goes on the chicken makes this an exquisite entree that is ideal for company. —Denise Kleffman, Gardena, California

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese blend
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallot
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter

Directions

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine the eggs, cheese and seasonings. Place flour in another shallow bowl. Coat chicken with flour, then dip in egg mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil in batches. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  3. In the drippings, saute shallot until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the wine, lemon juice, herbs and lemon zest; cook over medium heat until liquid is reduced by half. Add cream; cook until thickened, stirring occasionally. Stir in butter until melted. Serve sauce with chicken.
