Simple Scaloppine!

Amy Wright

No matter what the name - cutlets, paillards or scaloppine, this easy chicken dish is the perfect weeknight dinner go-to; quick, simple & satisfying!  The Italian word scaloppine means thinly sliced meat, the plural of scaloppa-veal chop. Replace traditional bread crumbs with Wondra flour for a crisp & light texture. Flatten the chicken’s surface area so the meat cooks evenly. Remember to heat both the pan & the oil enough to sear the meat.

Serves 2-3

Ingredients:

  1. 2 boneless, skinless breast halves, tenderloins removed, pounded ½ inch thin
  2. 2 tablespoons Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  3. 1 clove garlic, minced, discard the thin, horizontal green center or “anima” the heart of the clove that causes bitterness
  4. 1 cup dry white wine
  5. 1 cup of chicken broth
  6. 4 thin lemon slices
  7. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  8. 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
  9. ¼ cup Wondra flour
  10. ½ tsp. coarse sea salt
  11. ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add minced garlic; cook approx. 1 minute until fragrant but not brown.
  • Pour in white wine; add lemon slices, increase heat & simmer approx. 5 minutes until reduced by half.
  • Pour in chicken broth; simmer approx. 5 minutes until reduced by half. Add 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, add butter until melted. Remove from the heat.
  • Season the Wondra flour with remaining sea salt & ground pepper. Dredge the chicken with the flour. Warm 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken & cook thoroughly until no longer pink, approx. 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Plate chicken, spoon over with the sauce and lemon slices. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve & enjoy!
