Parmesan Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce

Parmesan and chicken go great together. This recipe adds some tasty sauce to an already delicious parmesan chicken recipe. The rich butter and natural lemon flavors make one of the most savory Chicken entree combinations you will find as an affordable menu selection. These ingredients are widely available and are normally very reasonably priced. Having a large family, I am continuously buying in bulk. I normally buy family packs of chicken and then look for at least two meals tot feature them. Butter and lemon are very good with chicken. Throw in delicious parmesan cheese and you will have an aristocratic simple meal the entire family will enjoy.

Clean and slice the chicken in half lengthwise (4 filets). Optional: Use a meat pounder to tenderize the each chicken to an even ⅓” thick. 

Mix flour, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper in a shallow.

Then whisk the eggs in a separate dish.

Soak the chicken breast in the eggs and then coat them with the parmesan mixture on both sides (gently shake off excess) and transfer to a plate. Repeat steps with remaining chicken.

Heat the skillet or non-stick pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and wait for 30-45 seconds or until hot. Fry the breaded chicken 3-4 minutes per-side or until crispy and golden.

Reduce the heat if they are growing too fast (monitor for even cooking per side). Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to do this in 2 batches. Return all chicken to the skillet/pan. Turn down the heat to low.

In a separate pan; add all the sauce ingredients together and whisk. Turn up the heat to medium and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and let simmer for 2-3 minutes.

 (flip and move/rotate the chicken for best results)

Garnish with sliced lemons and fresh parsley. Enjoy!

Enjoy!
