What is Chicken Francese? 

Chicken Francese is a dish that originated in Italy and is now commonly found in Italian-American restaurants.

It is made with chicken breasts that are dipped in an egg batter and then cooked in a sauce made from lemon juice, white wine, and butter.


4 boneless(skinless chicken breasts), 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour, Salt and black pepper, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of chicken broth,

1/4 cup of white wine, 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Use a meat mallet to pound the chicken breasts until they are an even thickness.

In a shallow dish, beat the eggs together with a fork. In another shallow dish, mix the flour with salt and pepper.

Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture, making sure it is coated evenly. Then, coat the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet and place it in the oven to keep warm. In the same skillet, add the chicken broth, white wine, and lemon juice. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the butter to the skillet and stir until it is melted and the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove the chicken from the oven and pour the sauce over the chicken.
