DIRECTIONS

  • For the chicken: Lightly pound chicken breasts to an even 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Blend egg whites, cornstarch, and half lemon juice with a fork in a wide, shallow dish.
  • Set aside.
  • Combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, and zest in a second wide, shallow bowl.
  • Individually dip chicken brests first in egg mixture, then in crumbs.
  • Pat crumbs on both sides of chicken- it's ok if some crumbs fall off.
  • Set crusted breasts on a wire rack for 20 to 30 minutes to set crust.
  • After 20 to 30 minutes, saute chicken in oil in a large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  • Carefully turn with a spatula and transfer skillet to a 450 degree oven to finish cooking.
  • Roast chicken until done, about 8 more minutes.
  • While chicken is roasting, prepare sauce.
  • For the sauce: Saute shallot in 1 T butter in a small saucepan over medium heat just until soft, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add wine, cream, broth, and remaining lemon juice.
  • Simmer until reduced by half, 8-10 minutes.
  • Whisk in remaining butter, one tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly.
  • Add sage and seasonings.
  • Place roasted chicken on a plate and top with sauce.
