8 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 2 teaspoons sauce)

Our Test Kitchens staff loved the subtle hint of lemon in the sauce of this chicken Français, a classic French favorite. For a more pronounced lemon flavor, try serving with lemon slices.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 8 ingredients in a shallow dish.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, and pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Dredge chicken in flour, and dip in the egg substitute mixture.

Step 3

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add 4 chicken breast halves; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Wipe the drippings from pan with a paper towel. Repeat the procedure with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and the remaining chicken.

Step 4

Melt butter in pan; add 1/4 cup wine and 3 tablespoons juice. Bring to a boil; cook for 10 seconds. Serve immediately over chicken.

This is so beautiful and elegant! Perfect for company. The Parmesan, white wine, and lemon gave the chicken the best coating, and the sauce is full of bright lemon and just a hint of butter. Served with white rice and haricots verts.

This was an easy and delicious recipe. I simply added some broccoli and some noodles lightly coated with lemon butter. It was very flavorful - just the right amount of hot sauce in it, I am not a spicy food lover. A very pleasant way to end a busy Saturday.

I have found this to be my "go -to" recipe when having dinner guests. I have had nothing but great compliments from my guests. It is easy to prepare and makes a nice presentation. You can serve this with just about any side dishes. Thanks C.L. for a great recipe.

This recipe was only so-so in my opinion. The chicken was fairly bland without the sauce. The sauce was good and added some flavor to the chicken, but it wasn't enough to make this a stand out recipe. I probably won't make this recipe again - there are so many other recipes that I like and so many I have yet to try.

Both my husband & I agree that this is by far the worst CL dish I have ever made. The texture was unappetizing and it lacked flavor. We had to toss this in the trash. I love CL and try new recipes regularly, this one flunked!
