Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Schnitzel - Lightened

1 egg white
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
12 ounces chicken breast
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1/8 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Chicken Schnitzel - Lightened

  1. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl with garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.

  2. In a separate shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs (I pulse the bread slices in the food processor to get nice fresh crumbs) and parmesan cheese.

  3. Dip each cutlet into egg mixture to coat completely, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture, patting it on to help it stick.

  4. For each 2 cutlets, heat 2 tbsp oil in a large non-stick skillet over med-high heat.

  5. Cook 2 cutlets at a time until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

  6. Transfer the cooked chicken cutlets to an oven-proof platter or pan, and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining cutlets and making the sauce.

  7. Wipe the skillet clean with paper towels.

  8. Heat butter until melted and add wine.

  9. Heat 30 seconds and stir in broth and lemon juice.

  10. Season with salt and pepper.

  11. Simmer 2 minutes.

  12. Pour broth mixture over cutlets and serve.

  13. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices.
