"Lemon and chicken make a great team, adding some acidity to the mix really elevates otherwise plain chicken breasts by adding loads of refreshing flavor. Chicken Francese takes pounded chicken breasts and marries it together with bright, refreshing lemon and a rich white wine-butter sauce. Flavorful, simple ingredients and 30 minutes are all you need! Chicken Francese is much like chicken piccata where the chicken is first pounded to a thin, even thickness and then dredged in both egg and flour. Francese simply means “French-style”, both dishes are pan-fried and enjoyed as thin cutlets. "
