How about preparing that Chicken Cutlet in a new way, Gluten Free Chicken Francese?? Hey guys! It’s really easy and a quick fix!
- 1 lb. Boneless Chicken Breast ( also called cutlets by many of us)
- ½ cup Gluten Free Bisquick
- Dash of Salt & Pepper
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 tbl Butter
- 1/4 cup White Wine. (Alcohol cooks off so only flavor remains)
- ½ cup to possibly more Chicken Broth. G-Free of course
- Juice of ½ Lemon
- Fresh Parsley leaves, chopped as a garnish.
- Optional: Several Crimini Mushrooms or White Button Mushrooms.
This recipe was prepared for a traditional kitchen, but you can transition it to Gluten Free as I did with Gluten Free Bisquick and G-F Broth.
Ok, first, on a cutting board slice the cutlets if they are too big & chunky. Mine were turned into 4 in or so. After cutting, place between 2 layers of Plastic Wrap and pound a little flatter.
Take 2 dishes, one deep enough to beat 2 eggs, and 1 flat for dredging the meat in the Bisquick. First dredge each slice in the Bisquick, then coat in the beaten egg, then go back to the Bisquick and dredge there a second time. Place each coated piece on a clean plate until all are done.
Heat the EVOO and 2 tbl Butter in a skillet or fry pan. I like ceramic coated pans, myself for things like this. When butter & oil have warmed, place in the chicken slices and on a heat that’s not too high ( you could burn the butter if it’s too hot) sautee 2 minutes on each side.
Remove to a plate and set aside. If you were adding the mushrooms to the recipe, now you can sautee sliced mushrooms for a minute or two. Then remove those also to a plate. Add the remaining ingredients (except the Parsley) to the bits of chicken that may have remained and flavors that are in the pan. If it’s too dry, then add 1 tbl more of butter. But mine didn’t need any additional. Use your judgment.
Now replace the chicken ( and mushrooms, if used) in the liquid and cover. Simmer for about 3 minutes longer.
Serve immediately and garnish with the chopped Parsley Flakes. This is great served next to a swirl of G-Free Spaghetti. Lemony & Light! This is so quick, you’ll love it whenever short on time or whenever you’d like Chicken Cutlets in another way other than grilled or breaded with bread crumbs or in a sauce. Try it!
