Easy After Work Chicken Francaise -


2 cups all-purpose flour
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 pound thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 sprigs fresh parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges


Season 2 cups flour with salt and pepper. Coat chicken cutlets in seasoned flour, shaking off excess, then dip in egg.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry chicken until golden brown on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to a plate. Melt butter in the same skillet; cook and stir remaining 2 tablespoons flour in butter for 5 minutes, then add chicken broth and lemon juice. Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet. Continue simmering until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 more minutes.
Serve chicken with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges.
