DIRECTIONS

  • Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat.
  • Season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper, and coat each side with flour (shaking off any excess).
  • Cook the chicken until golden and cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to serving plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  • Turn the heat to medium, add the shallots and the garlic and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Using a wooden spoon, scrape all the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook until the wine is almost evaporated.
  • Add the chicken broth and saffron threads, bring to a simmer (keeping the heat of the pan at medium) and reduce for 10 minutes. Add the cream, salt, and pepper.
  • Stir to combine and simmer for 1 minute to blend the flavors (or let it simmer longer to reduce further). If you want an even thicker sauce, you can mix 1 Tablespoon cornstarch with 1 Tablespoon water, and add it to the pan.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
