The Best Lunch Ever (It's Last Night's Dinner)

3/07/2013


I'm not lying when I tell you that this was seriously one of the most amazing lunches I've had in a long time. It's a lemon chicken cutlet with swiss cheese and arugula and a side of olives and asparagus. Ah-mazing. I have to thank my Dad for the recipe (he actually also made the cutlets) and it's so tasty and healthy and just downright delicious! Get the recipe after the jump...


Lemon Chicken Cutlets - From Cooking.com

Ingredients:
6 chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
salt
freshly ground pepper
garlic powder
4 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh-flat parsley
lemon slices

Directions:
1. Place chicken breast halves between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper and pound with a
    kitchen mallet or rolling pin until they are about 1/4 inch think. You can also just slice them. :)
2. Season cutlets with salt pepper and garlic powder
3. Dredge in flour, shaking off excess.
4. In large skillet heat 2 tablespoons butter and oil over medium high heat until hot.
5 Cook cutlets on each side until golden brown, about 5 minutes or until the juices run clear.
6. Remove from pan and keep warm
7. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of flour and cook
    for 1 minute.
8. Stir in chicken broth, stirring up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
9. Heat to boiling and cook until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
10. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and parsley.
11. Season with additional salt and pepper.
12. Serve lemon sauce with cutlets and slices of lemon.


And then viola...a couple of pieces of French Bread, swiss cheese and arugula and presto...lunch is served for the next day too! Bon appetit, my friends!
