At a highly-rated Italian restaurant chain I ordered the Veal Limone with Tuscan Beans and Escarole. It was amazing, but a bit pricey. So I made my own recipe with easier-to-find and affordable ingredients: chicken breasts, navy beans, and Brussels sprouts.

  • Season flour, eggs, and bread crumbs with salt and pepper. Mix cayenne pepper into the flour only. Dip each breast into flour, then into the beaten eggs, and then into the bread crumbs, coating evenly. Place onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes on each side or until brown and crispy.

  • While chicken bakes, heat oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and Brussels sprouts and stir until garlic releases its fragrance and sprouts are heated through, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir in the flour. Then add the water, lemon juice, drained beans, and sugar. Stir over medium heat until sauce thickens, about 8 minutes. Add additional water if sauce is too thick. Remove from the heat and stir in remaining butter, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.

  • Place each piece of chicken onto a serving plate. Spoon the sauce over it and garnish with chopped parsley and remaining Parmesan cheese.

This turned out fabulous. Easy and tasty. I used boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts (I personally think they are more flavorful and cheaper too!) and I used 1/2 white wine 1/2 water. I also used fresh brussel sprouts quartered about 2.5 cups. Like previous user I also used just a half teaspoon sugar just enough to cut the tartness of lemons. Really a tasty dish and interesting use of brussel sprouts! Read More

It was a nice change to dinner but if I do make it again I will leave out the lemon juice since it had an overwhelming taste. Read More

This is a delicious and versatile recipe. Like others I cut back the sugar and used fresh Brussels sprouts. I par boil the sprouts but I'm not sure it's necessary. I've used this recipe for chicken and salmon. For the salmon I omitted the beans and added artichoke hearts. I also used Panko bread crumbs and tossed in a handful of Gouda cheese along with the Parmesan for both the chicken and the salmon. I plan to try this with some other cheeses such as Gruyere.

I'm definitely cutting back on the sugar to maybe a pinch or two. But other than that this recipe is awesome! Thanks! Read More

We love brussel sprouts so I was excited to try this recipe. I made as-written (always always always the first time); While the chicken was quite good we found the sauce to be quite bland. I had to tweak it allot at the end to give it a little flavor so I'm only rating it 3 stars. Adding fresh saute'd onion and allot of garlic salt to the sauce made it into a nice dinner -- but it's not a keeper for us. Read More

My boyfriend LOVED this. It is unlike anything we've tasted and the flavors just melded perfectly. I used half the butter and just used more olive oil in the beginning and a dash of garlic salt at the end. Seriously delicious. Read More
