Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Francese and Wilted Spinach

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cutlets
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1/2 cup flour
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
2 ounces skim milk
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons butter

Recipe Directions for Chicken Francese and Wilted Spinach

  1. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat.

  2. Season the chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in flour.

  3. In a small bowl, beat the eggs and egg yolk with milk and season with a little salt.

  4. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to the skillet, then add 2 tablespoons of the butter, cut into small pieces.

  5. When the butter melts into the oil, add the crushed clove of garlic to the skillet. When the garlic speaks by sizzling in the oil, coat the chicken in the egg mixture, then add to the hot pan.

  6. Cook the flounder on both sides until just golden, 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and tent loosely to retain the heat.

  7. Add the wine to the pan and deglaze by whisking up the drippings.

  8. Reduce the wine for 1 minute, add the remaining tablespoon of butter and the parsely to the pan. Pour the sauce over the chicken.

  9. Return the skillet to the heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then add the chopped garlic and let it come to a sizzle. Wilt in the spinach, turning it to coat in the olive oil, and season it with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Serve the spinach alongside the chicken francese.
