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)
  • Cook time:15 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation

1. Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.

2. Combine egg white and water in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Place breadcrumbs in another shallow dish. Dip each chicken breast half in egg mixture; dredge in breadcrumbs.

3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of chicken to pan. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate; cover and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and chicken.
