Chicken Scaloppini

Scallopini are cuts of meat that are pounded thin and then cooked to perfection in about 6 minutes. For a beautifully browned crust, make sure the pan and oil are hot—the chicken should hiss as it hits the pan.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 1 tablespoon sauce)
