This is a great recipe for the couple who has one big eater and one small eater. I can't eat a whole chicken breast, but my husband can. The typical 3-pack of chicken breasts sold in supermarkets works perfectly for two night's worth of dinner for two.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts, then trim off fat.
  2. Put them between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound out evenly to a ½ inch thickness with a mallet.
  3. Season generously with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper (both sides).
  4. Dust lightly with flour (both sides) and shake off excess just before adding to pan.
  5. Melt 2 ½ tablespoons butter in large saute pan over med-high heat.
  6. Add chicken breasts and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. (You’ll know when it’s done when breasts are browned sufficiently on both sides.) Remove and allow to rest for a few minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley, squirt with lemon wedges, and serve.
