A light an tasty Chicken Francaise (aka French style chicken) in a lemon butter sauce that is so easy to make!

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded thin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour (gluten-free for gluten-free)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or white wine)

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste, dredge in the flour, shake off any excess, dip into the egg, shake off excess, and fry in the oil until lightly golden brown on both sides before setting aside.
  3. Add the butter to the pan and heat, over medium heat, until it sizzles before adding the garlic and red pepper flakes and cooking until fragrant, about a minute.
