Lemon Chicken With White Wine and Parsley Easy
photo by Annemarie
- Ready In:
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
- kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 4 large eggs
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 lemon, thinly sliced into rounds
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine, such as pinot grigio
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Preheat oven to 200°F.
- Place chicken breasts side by side on a cutting board and lay a piece of plastic wrap over them. Pound the chicken breasts with a flat meat mallet or the bottom of a heavy saucepan to about 1/4-inch thick.
- Put flour in shallow platter and season with fair amount of salt and pepper. Mix with fork to distribute seasoning.
- In wide bowl, beat eggs with 3 tablespoons water to make an egg wash.
- Place oil in large skillet and heat over medium-high heat until hot.
- Dredge chicken in seasoned flour, and pat off excess. (Reserve flour.) Dip chicken in egg wash to coat completely, letting excess drip off. Add chicken to hot oil and fry about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden, turning once.
- Remove cutlets to a large platter (in a single layer) and place in oven to keep warm.
- Now toss the lemon slices into pan and cook for a minute or two, until fragrant.
- Add wine, stock and lemon juice, and simmer 5 minutes to reduce sauce slightly.
- Roll the pat of butter in the seasoned flour and add to skillet. This will help thicken sauce. Stir or whisk to emulsify and dissolve flour.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and return chicken to pan. Fish out lemon slices with tongs and place on top of chicken.
- Simmer the whole thing gently for about 2 minutes to heat chicken through.
- Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

What a fantastic recipe! Deliciously tender chicken (must come from the pounding)! And the sauce is perfection. Served it last night with Spinach Asparagus Risotto - the taste combination is one I can highly recommend. My only comment is about the number of eggs for the wash. One egg per chicken breast??!! Two was MORE than enough for four filets.
*Reviewed for Zaar World Tour 3* Loved the chicken cooked this way. The wine seemed to mellow the lemon somewhat- even my daughters enjoyed this dinner. We served ours with Katia's "recipe#229459" and simple boiled rice. Delicious chicken-a definite keeper of a recipe. Thanks for another great recipe kiwidutch. Photo to come
Fantastic! Me and the boyfriend made this for dinner last night, ate the leftovers before bed, and then made it again for dinner tonight! That's how much we love it. Tonight, we used a little more lemon juice and we felt it balanced out the wine flavor really well. We also added mushrooms to the gravy tonight because I love mushrooms with everything. Thank you for this recipe, it's awesome! Definitely something we will make often around here. Also, we made it with red potatoes, drizzled with olive oil and a packet of onion soup mix. It goes GREAT with the chicken! Thanks again!
