This week's Food for Thought is coming to us courtesy of my friend, Rich Epstein, Corporate Trainer and Coach Extraordinaire for Residential Properties Ltd.


1 lb. skinless-boneless chicken breast

1 egg
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Bread crumbs (plain)
Grated Parmesan cheese
1 stick butter
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
3 cloves crushed garlic (or to taste)
2 tsp. parsley
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 c. chicken broth

Slice chicken as cutlets or strips. Beat together with fork, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Mix plain bread crumbs with grated Parmesan cheese (1 part cheese to 2 parts crumbs). Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture and then in bread crumbs mixture. Brown in oil. Set aside in baking dish.

For sauce: melt together 1 stick of butter and juice of 1 1/2 lemons. Add 3 cloves crushed garlic (or to taste), 2 teaspoons parsley, 1/8 teaspoon pepper and 1 cup chicken broth. Simmer 10 minutes; strain if desired. Pour over chicken in baking dish.

Bake covered 40 minutes and then uncovered 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve chicken over rice. Serves 4. Enjoy!

The sauce sounds really interesting and I have all of that stuff on hand! I might just have to give it a go.

Sandy said...

Honeywine, please do and let me know how it goes. I made it last night and it was very good. For my own taste, next time I will use a little less lemon juice. I did use more garlic than called for and that was just fine.
