Lemony Pork or Chicken Scaloppine With Lemon Cream Sauce

"For a special occasion or a simply delicious weeknight dinner. I cannot emphasize enough that freshly grated cheese melts better and makes for a smoother sauce. The shelf stuff is to cover up bad pizza."

Ready In:




  • Pound the cutlets into 1/4” thick cutlets. Season with salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder.
  • In one bowl, whisk together eggs and milk or water. In another dish, add flour, season with a little salt and pepper and lemon zest, stirring to combine.
  • Dip pork cutlets into the egg mixture, turning to coat then dip into the flour mixture; coating both sides. Lay coated cutlets on waxed paper.
  • In a large saute pan, heat the butter and oil until hot. Fry the cutlets until they are browned on each side, about 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil. Place cutlets on a serving platter and drizzle the lemon sauce on top. Garnish with minced parsley.
  • To make lemon cream sauce: In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add lemon juice, heavy cream, cheese, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer low for 7-10 minutes until sauce reduces and thickens to desired consistency.

    enjoyed it. Cream got too thick though--and I had only used milk. I'm not a good last minute cooker so I gave it too much cooking time.

    Great chicken. My sauce didn't turn out right but was still good. Served with fresh lemon chive pasta.

    Fantastic!!! I just loved this Scaloppine!! I went with chicken breast and served it a pasta side. I, too, used fresh parmesan shavings, so good!!! By dipping the chicken/pork in the egg mixture really makes a difference with the texture and creates a nice crunchy exterior. This is a definite repeat. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
