  1. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Beat eggs in a separate shallow bowl. Coat each piece of chicken in flour; dip in beaten eggs to coat completely. Press chicken into flour again until evenly coated. Reserve remaining flour.
  2. Coat a skillet with olive oil and set over medium heat. Cook each piece of coated chicken in the hot olive oil until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  4. Combine chicken broth, white wine, butter, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until sauce is smooth, not allowing it to boil, about 5 minutes. Slowly sift 1 cup reserved flour into sauce while continually whisking until sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken.
  5. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This could be a 5 I cut te flour in the sauce to 1/4 cup 1/4cup butter 2-3 garlic cloves. Next time I make it would serve with mashed potatoes

I think the measurements are pretty far off. You only need 1 cup of flour total and only use 1/3-1/2 cup total in the sauce. There was way too much garlic. You should definitely cut that in half...

My son said “this is what I hope heaven smells like.” The sauce is so full of flavor, I did add 1 Tbls garlic season all, and I cut the flour in half. It was pretty thick. A delicious garlic, b...
