What You'll Need

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs (store-bought)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 (12-ounce) package noodles, cooked

What to Do

  1. Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin (see note).

  2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper; lightly dredge in breadcrumbs.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 of chicken, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden and done. Remove chicken to a serving platter, and cover with aluminum foil. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken and 1 tablespoon oil.

  4. Add broth and lemon juice to skillet, and cook, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet, until sauce is slightly thickened. Remove from heat; add butter and parsley, stirring until butter melts. Pour sauce over chicken, and serve over warm noodles.

Notes

Flattening chicken breasts to a 1/4-inch thickness allows the chicken to cook more quickly. If using a meat mallet, be sure to use the flat side.
