Parmesan Crusted Chicken
The World Awaits


This Parmesan crusted chicken masterpiece is your claim to world renown.

Well that’s probably overstating it - a little bit.

This feast has a nice delicate blend of ingredients. It has cream (and you know how my chef feels about that!) and white wine (I’m not sure how he feels about wine though - maybe it’s time I asked......)

But no matter, your guests will feel well served by this worldly recipe!

Ingredients (Serves 4 crusts!):

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
whites from 2 eggs
juice of 1 lemon
75 g of breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil

For the sauce:

2 medium onions, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
100 ml of chicken broth
5 tablespoons of butter
salt and pepper to taste

Directions :

Wash chicken breasts and dry on paper towels.

Blend egg whites and half the lemon juice in a shallow dish. Set aside.

Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.

Dip your breasts into the lemon-egg mixture, then in the crumbs. Pat crumbs on both sides of chicken.

Sautée chicken breasts in olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes - until it gets a gorgeous, light, brown colour.

Put chicken into a baking dish and in to a 450°C pre-heated oven to finish cooking and bake for about 10-12 minutes - or until crispy and well cooked!

In the mean time prepare the sauce:

Wash, peel and chop the onions.

Then sautée them, with some of the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the wine, cream, broth, and the remaining lemon juice.

Simmer for about 6-7 minutes.

Whisk in the remaining butter - one tablespoon at a time - stirring constantly.

Season with salt and pepper - add parsley.

My Chef's Tips:

To finish this Parmesan crusted chicken creation, place breasts on individual plates with your favourite vegetables, and pour over that lovely sauce!

Serve with a hearty green salad and the world is at your call!
