4 servings


  • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, or as needed

  • 1 medium lemon, juiced, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

  • ¾ cup dry white wine

  • 2 cups chicken broth


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Pound chicken breasts thin using a meat mallet.

  2. Combine beaten eggs and Parmesan cheese in a bowl; mix until uniform. Place flour on a wide, shallow plate.

  3. Soak 1 piece of chicken in the egg and cheese mixture, then place in flour to coat both sides. Place back in the egg mixture again, and coat with flour for a second time; transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  4. Pour olive oil into the bottom of a large frying pan and heat over medium heat until warm. Add chicken, in batches as needed, and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, no longer pink in the center, and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes. Place the cutlets in the preheated oven and use the same pan to prepare the sauce.

  5. Pour white wine into the pan; bring to a boil while scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Allow to reduce until you no longer smell the alcohol, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and increase heat to high; allow the volume to boil down to about half. Add lemon juice. Transfer chicken into the sauce let sit, 3 to 5 minutes, turning once.
