DIRECTIONS

  • Form chicken into 4 oval patties about 1/2" thick. Dredge patties in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs, gently pressing breadcrumbs on. Place on a rack and chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes or 15 minutes in a blast chiller.
  • Combine about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a saute pan. When bubbly, add breaded chicken patties. Saute until golden. Flip. Saute until golden. Remove to an oven safe dish. Add more butter and oil if needed during sauteing. Finish cooking patties in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Test with a meat thermometer for doneness. Meanwhile, make the sauce.
  • For sauce:
  • Make a roux with the butter and flour in a small saucepan. Allow to bubble gently over low heat, about 2 - 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Add paprika, thyme, chicken stock, heavy cream, cognac or sherry and lemon juice, whisking constantly. Allow the mixture to come up to a boil, reduce heat and allow to thicken, about 2 - 3 minutes. Thin if needed with additional chicken stock. Remove from heat. Add sour cream and blend thoroughly. Keep warm, but do not allow to boil.
  • Place cutlets on a bed of cooked egg noodles, pour sauce over all and serve.
