BREADED CHICKEN IN LEMON BUTTER SAUCE

 



BREADED CHICKEN IN LEMON BUTTER SAUCE 

This is my favorite way of breading chicken. It is a light breading. I use Parmesan cheese sparingly, so that the recipe is not too ridiculously high in sodium, but still tasty as can be.  The Lemon Butter Sauce is over-the-top good! You need to try this recipe.  My husband and I absolutely loved this incredibly flavorful meal.


2 large chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise

Olive oil

Breading:

1/4 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 OR almond flour, OR (60 mL)

  Keto Bake Mix

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese (30 mL)

  (kind in a canister)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

1/8 tsp black pepper (0.5 mL)

Egg Wash:

2 eggs

1 tbsp water (15 mL)

Lemon Butter Sauce:

8 tbsp butter (125 mL)

1/4 cup chicken stock (60 mL)

1 tbsp minced garlic (15 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

3 tbsp freshly-squeezed lemon juice (45 mL)

 

Breading: In small bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour, OR Keto Bake Mix, Parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper. 

Egg Wash:  In small bowl, whisk eggs and water together. 

Dip chicken breast cutlets in the egg wash and spoon the breading over the chicken on both sides.  In a large nonstick pan in olive oil, and over medium heat, fry chicken 3 minutes, flip the cutlets as the chicken becomes golden brown.  Keep turning occasionally as you don’t want the breading to burn.  Cook until chicken is white throughout.  Add to Lemon Butter Sauce and cook about 1 to 2 minutes to reheat sauce.  Serve right away. 

Lemon Butter Sauce:  In nonstick frying pan, add butter, chicken stock, minced garlic and black pepper.  Bring to the boil and stir in the lemon juice. Boil 1 minute.
