I am always in search of new recipes. New tastes to keep food interesting. It is entirely too easy for me to fall into patterns. For me, that would be garlic, cheese, and bacon. This meal had none of those but I think that garlic would be a fantastic addition…I probably won’t remake this ever again without garlic. Yes, I am an addict. A garlic addict.
First, cook some pasta. Or at least get the water boiling. I used egg noodles this night because that is what I had. About a half of a bag.
Now onto the chicken. I gave it a quick pound with the mallet. It doesn’t need to be thin, just have an even thickness throughout for even cooking. I cut two of the large chicken breasts in half but you could keep them whole, or cut them up into small pieces.
Next, I put a cup or so of flour in a bowl and mixed in salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Put in as much or as little as you want. I coated the chicken with the flour mixture.
And put into a hot pan. The flour helps it brown nicely without having to go through all of the steps of coating in bread crumbs. I lowered the heat to medium to medium high until the chicken was cooked fully through, flipping periodically to keep the chicken from burning.
Next time, I will probably just grill the chicken or cook it under the broiler.
While the chicken is cooking, I melted a half stick of butter in a sauce pan and let it melt. I added ¼ cup of onion and let those cook for a minute or two until they just started to become transparent. This is the point I wish I had added some freshly minced garlic. Just a couple of cloves.
I added a cup of wine and a quarter cup of lemon juice. Mix everything together and let it boil down a little. Hopefully everything is finished at about the same time. I put a serving of noodles in the bowl, added a few freshly chopped tomatoes, placed a chicken breast on top then drizzled it all with the lemon wine sauce.
It was fresh and filling without being too heavy.
