famous chicken francaise.

Don’t be deceived by the title. This chicken dish is so easy to make, 20 minutes tops. I swear. I am not sure why it was called Chicken Francaise when there’s no French-sounding ingredient used. It could easily be called lemon chicken cos the main ingredient is lemon, but for whatever it’s worth, I am just borrowing the recipe, so why care about the name?


Anyway, all I know is that it’s delicious and would definitely be a part of my “kitchen repertoire.”

I got this recipe from AllRecipes – no revisions on my end. Followed the recipe to a T. Oh, wait… Except for the chicken broth part, I used 2 chicken cubes dissolved in a cup of hot water.

You’ll need:
1 egg, beaten
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch paprika
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 lemon, juiced
6 slices lemon, for garnish
2 sprigs fresh parsley, for garnish

In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the egg and juice of 1/2 lemon. In another shallow dish or bowl mix together the flour, garlic powder and paprika. Dip chicken breasts in egg mixture, then flour mixture.

Heat butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until golden on each side.

In a medium bowl, mix together broth and juice of 1 lemon, and pour mixture over chicken in skillet. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for about 8 minutes. Place on serving platter, and garnish with fresh lemon slices and parsley sprigs.

And enjoy!
