  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 4 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • ½ cup white wine

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 2 medium lemons, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 teaspoons water

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Dredge chicken in flour; shake off excess. Dip into beaten egg. Lift up so excess egg drips back into the bowl. Press into flour again to coat both sides. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and sauté until almost cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  4. Heat chicken broth, wine, butter, lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter melts. Stir water and cornstarch together in a small bowl until combined; add to broth mixture and cook until it thickens slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Place chicken into the prepared baking dish and pour sauce over top.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
