{NEW} Chicken Francese ?

Chicken Française (or Chicken Francese) is an Italian-American dish of flour-dredged, egg-dipped, sautéed chicken cutlets with a rich lemon-butter and white wine sauce.
This chicken is one of my favorites to make on Sunday. It’s similar to our favorite chicken piccata, but different enough to add variety to our menu.

I’ve exchanged all-purpose flour for almond flour, and reduced the amount of butter used in the traditional recipe.
While this is a “richer” recipe to enjoy occasionally thanks to the butter and wine, I think it’s an ABSOLUTE TREAT, and just as satisfying as resturant style Chicken Française.

makes 4 servings
2 large eggs, I prefer pasture raised
2 Tbsps grass fed cream, OR organic coconut cream

10 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 lemon, thinly sliced

Pat your chicken cutlets dry with paper towels, then dip them into your egg mixture, then lightly dredge them into the almond flour mixture.

Heat oil in a large skillet or non stick pan over medium low heat. Add the chicken and cook until it begins to brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes total, flipping once, then set aside on a plate.
The chicken should not be fully cooked at this stage, as it will continue to cook in the wine sauce.

Wipe out the pan with paper towels and return to a medium heat.

Add in butter, and your minced garlic, then sauté until fragrant just a few minutes. Now pour in your white wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes. Add in your chicken s
