During my vacation to Paris, one item that could always be found on the menu was chicken paillard, or pounded chicken. Because it was always on the menu, my family enjoyed it often, and each one I tried was one of my favorite meals.
If you read my tip from yesterday, (HERE), you don’t need any fancy tools for pounding your chicken. Read below for an easy and tasty recipe!
2 Chicken Breasts
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 TBSP Olive Oil
Salt, pepper, and Herbes de Provence to taste
1 TBSP Butter
Lay chicken breasts on counter in between wax paper
Pound chicken to 1/4 inch thickness
Combine lemon, olive oil, and spices in shallow bowl, and whisk to combine. Place chicken in dish and let marinate 15 minutes per side
Place skillet on medium-high heat and once pan is hot, place butter in skillet. Once butter is melted, add marinated chicken
Cook chicken through and serve over salad or with veggies. I served my Lemon Chicken Paillard over romaine lettuce, accompanied with goat cheese (another French favorite!)
Enjoy this recipe and stay hungry…
