  1. Preheat oven to 100 C / Gas 1/4. Place a serving plate into the oven to warm.
  2. Season the chicken breast pieces with salt and pepper and dredge them in flour. Shake off excess flour.
  3. Cook and stir the garlic in the frying pan until fragrant, about 20 seconds. Pour in the chicken stock. Scrape and dissolve any brown bits from the bottom of the frying pan.
  4. Arrange the chicken strips on serving plates and spoon sauce over each portion to serve.

very nice cheers-09 Jan 2013

OMG, this is exactly what I was looking for. It's restaurant quality. The sauce is SO SO good and I think adding the lemon slices early on really makes it POP like you suggested with a beautiful fragrance and taste. My family was very impressed. UPDATE: Made this for my husband's business client and he asked for the recipe to take home. Also, someone said they thought the sauce was too acidic.. adding lemon slices in at the end only heightens the acidity, not tempers it. I happen to love the taste of lemon like this, but that's just me. Try adding some white wine to the first reduction, then add the chicken broth and go from there. That might help.-06 May 2010

When I make this recipe, I use Italian flavored bread crumbs, instead of flour, to dredge the chicken. Also pound the chicken breasts out a little so they cook faster. I use white wine instead of chicken broth for the sauce. This sauce really requires some tasting to check for tartness as it reduces. If it's too tart, add a small amount of sugar starting with a tsp. Chicken Picata is probably my favorite chicken dish and it's truly elegant and 'company' worthy.-22 Jul 2010


Lemon Butter Chicken Cutlets

Serve them with our fluffy mashed potatoes or our warm zucchini salad for a lighter meal.

You can never underestimate the value of a good and reliable chicken recipe collection. Chicken is the meat, that is the most popular and also most affordable. No wonder it&rsquos so loved. That is the reason I will never get tired of creating new recipes with this versatile meat.


How To Make Chicken Romano Low Carb & Gluten Free

As I’ve mentioned many, many times that I’m always trying to keep things Paleo or low carb. This recipe usually calls for dredging your chicken in flour first, then egg, then cheese. I just used almond flour instead and combined the egg and cheese mixtures for simplicity.

For those of you that have no problem with flour, just substitute regular flour for the almond flour, however I thought the almond flour worked fine. As a matter of fact I served this to my family including my in laws and no one knew it was almond flour.


Recipe Summary

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ large yellow onion, minced
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 lemon, juiced

Place chicken breasts in a oven proof baking dish. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken, and season with lemon pepper, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and white wine cook and stir until the onions are soft. Lower the heat to medium whisk in the flour. Gradually whisk heavy cream into the flour mixture. Stir in the milk and remaining lemon juice. Pour the cream sauce directly over the chicken breasts in the baking dish.

Cover baking dish with aluminum foil. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chicken piece should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


How to Make Lemon Butter Sauce

  1. Add butter to a light-coloured saucepan (this is important so you can see that it does not burn) and melt over medium heat.
  2. Once the butter is melted, add the lemon juice, chopped herbs and pepper and simmer for 3 mins.
  3. Switch off the heat and serve over the lemon butter sauce fish, chicken, pasta or the vegetables of your choice.

How to make chicken piccata

  1. First, dredge the chicken in a mixture of flour, salt, and pepper. Dredging simply means you&rsquoll coat each piece of chicken as much as possible in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
  2. Then, cook the chicken in melted butter and olive oil. Why both? Butter gives it a gorgeous golden-brown color, whereas olive oil crisps it up. It&rsquos the best of both worlds!
  3. After you&rsquove cooked the chicken for three minutes on each side, remove it to a plate and add white wine to the skillet. You can also use chicken broth/stock. Then, deglaze the skillet by scraping up any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add lemon juice, zest, and capers to the skillet and heat up until the liquid is reduced by about half. (Read more about what the heck capers are here)
  5. Turn off the heat and melt a little more butter into the sauce. YUM.
  6. Then, add the chicken back into the skillet to get coated in the sauce and warm up a bit. All done!

How to Make the Most Moist Chicken Romano with Lemon Butter Sauce

This Chicken Romano recipe is one I cherish. I am obsessed with perfectly cooked and moist chicken. When done right, a chicken breast should be so moist that you can cut it with a fork. Combine with simple and wonderful flavors like lemon, butter, garlic and Romano cheese for heaven on a plate. Add some crusty bread and a good white wine for a dinner that you would be proud to serve to family and friends.

So what is the secret? Three things actually Brine the chicken, cook in the oven until just barely reaches 165 degrees, and lots of butter!

Brining is much easier than you think. All you need is Kosher Salt, sugar, and water. Submerge the chicken breasts in the brine solution and let sit covered in a fridge for at least 4 to 6 hours. Start it in the morning before you got to work. Cook it when you get home and have an amazing and easy dinner in 45 minutes.

The flavors are simple. Lots of garlic, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, white wine and Italian parsley.

My favorite zesting tool is a microplane with wide grates. I zest the outer skin, and juice the same lemon.

When the chicken is ready, remove it from the brine and rinse well. The next step is to make a quick 5-minute butter, garlic, wine, lemon sauce in a sauce pan on the stove top. Pour the lemon butter sauce in the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish.

For this dish, I choose to leave the breasts whole. I wanted the thick breast meat. An alternate is to slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise. While the chicken portion will be thinner, it will go farther for more people. Some people prefer a thinner cut. This is your choice. Next is the breading. Instead of the classic egg and breadcrumb coating, I used, MELTED BUTTER (OMG!) and breadcrumbs with lots of freshly grated Romano and Parmesan cheese. I love my stainless steel, interlocking breading pans. Very handy and easy to clean.

Dip the chicken breast in the melted butter butter, and then coat in the breadcrumb cheese mixture.As the butter cools from the cold chicken it will still be easy to coat in butter. Pat the breadcrumb/cheese mixture onto the chicken. Place the breaded chicken breast in the baking pan with the lemon butter sauce. Keep them in a single layer so the tops can get crispy.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until the chicken reaches 155 degrees on a digital meat thermometer. The chicken will keep cooking in the hot butter after you take it out of then oven to reach the recommended 165 degrees. Do not overcook the chicken. This is one key to moist chicken. I highly recommend you use a digital thermometer to be sure.

Let the chicken sit for ten minutes. Plate the chicken with some sauce from the bottom of the pan. Serve this with a simple vegetable or salad, some crusty bread and white wine.

Chicken Milanese with Lemon Butter Sauce

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes for Chicken Milanese that I have made for years. I can’t believe it’s taken me almost 5 years to share this recipe on MT. I love to make it when we are entertaining because it’s seriously tastes like it came from my favorite Italian restaurant but it’s made right in my own kitchen. If you are looking to impress family and friends with a delicious dinner that everyone will love then you have to make this, trust me!

Not only is this dish delish but it’s super easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand. My secret for making the ultimate Chicken Milanese is using thinly sliced chicken breast or cutlets which you can usually find at the grocery store. If you just have regular chicken breast, then cut them in half and use a mallet to flatten them. The flatter the better. My other secret is the Lemon Butter Sauce that is drizzled on top. It’s the best! I just don’t do a little drizzle either. To really infuse this delicious Lemon Butter Sauce that is made with butter, fresh lemon juice and wine I like to quickly dip the chicken in the sauce or drizzle them several times to really get that flavor in there. You can even serve extra sauce on the side for more deliciousness.

One of the key ingredients to Chicken Milanese is bread crumbs. Progresso™ Bread Crumbs help make meal preparation easier and taste great in whatever dish you are making. It’s a staple in my pantry and I use it in a variety of recipes including meatballs, meatloaf and of course Chicken Parm.
