Chicken Francese - Have a French fling this evening! A white wine reduction brings the continental flair, but this recipe is still lean and nutritious enough to be a Smart Balance pick.
- 8 thin skinless chicken cutlets, about 3 oz each
- kosher salt and fresh pepper, to taste
- 3 tbsp Smart Balance® Non-GMO Buttery Spread
- 1/4 cup unbleached flour
- 1/2 cup egg whites, beaten
- 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the flour in a bowl, and the beaten egg whites in another bowl. Melt 1 tablespoon of the Smart Balance® Non-GMO Buttery Spread in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat.
In two batches, lightly flour 4 pieces of chicken, then dip in egg whites and add to the skillet. Sauté chicken 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until cooked through. When cooked, transfer to a plate. Repeat with 1 tablespoon of Smart Balance® Non-GMO Buttery Spread and remaining chicken until all the chicken is cooked; set aside.
Pour the chicken broth into the skillet along with the lemon juice, white wine and remaining buttery spread. Simmer over medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes until it reduces slightly and thickens. Return the chicken to the pan to combine with the sauce and finish with parsley.
