Recipe: Sauteed Italian Chicken

There is a wonderful Italian restaurant near my home that I love. It isn't a chain; it's an independently owned restaurant. They have many things on the menu I love to eat, but one of them is amazing. It's called "chicken French," and it's a type of breaded chicken with some sort of lemon and olive oil sauce.

I found this recipe on the back of a bread crumbs box and thought that it might come close to tasting like chicken French. It wasn't too far off, but I couldn't quite figure out the sauce.

This recipe is really easy and it doesn't take long to make. The first thing you do is wash your chicken. Then, season with salt and pepper.
Next, lightly dust the chicken with flour and dip it in some whisked eggs. Batter the strips in Italian bread crumbs. Throw your now-battered chicken in a skillet of olive oil and cook on medium heat until the internal temperature reaches 175-180. 

Be careful not to turn up your heat too high, as your breading will burn before the meat cooks. It's a very tasty dish, and you should serve it with a side of spaghetti and marinara sauce. 

As always, here is your recipe card. Please right click on the card to save it to your computer. For best results, change your paper size to 5X7 to print on a 5X7 index card.
