  • 8 thinly sliced skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons of minced garlic
  • ¼ cup white cooking wine (or table wine- the alcohol content burns off while simmering)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • Butter for the pan
  1. Place the flour in a shallow pie dish. Beat together the 3 eggs and place into a second shallow pie dish. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour, coating evenly on both sides and then dip the chicken into the eggs.
  2. Lightly brown each side of the chicken breast in butter- about three minutes per side. Remove browned chicken from the pan and set aside while you continue to brown all of the chicken breasts.
  3. Using the same pan and pan drippings, add another tablespoon of butter and the 1½ teaspoons of minced garlic and lightly sauté. Add in the white cooking wine and lemon juice and allow that to simmer for one minute. Then place your browned chicken breasts back into the pan, cover and simmer until the chicken is thoroughly cooked through- about 10 minutes.
  4. Serve the chicken next to bed of pasta and drizzle the sauce on top. It’s so good!
