This is a wonderful lower-fat restaurant-quality dish that is easy to make, I also like to add in a few tablespoons of capers and cook with the lemon glaze if you are a lover of capers then ad
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded to about 1/3-inch thickness)
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 large egg (you may need two)
- 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning (or to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil (for frying)
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (can use more to taste)
- 4 -5 thin lemon slices
- fresh parsley, chopped (to taste)
- In a small bowl or shallow dish whisk together mustard and eggs; set aside.
- Combine the dry bread crumbs with poultry seasoning, garlic powder and seasoning salt; spread on a piece of waxed paper.
- Dip the breasts firstly in egg/mustard mixture (shake off any excess egg) then coat well with the crumb mixture, pressing downs with hands to adhear the crumbs to the breast.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add in the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until it is no longer pink inside; remove and transfer to a plate to keep warm.
- For the glaze; in the same skillet add in the broth, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste, if using capers add in now) bring to a boil scraping any brown bits from the pan.
- Add in lemon slices and parsley; mix to combine for about 1 minute.
- Spoon the glaze/sauce over chicken.
