Chicken breasts cooked in butter

chicken cooked in butter

 

 

The test recipe of chicken cooked in butter looked so good I had to take a picture. The egg plant fries on the other hand, not so awesome. They were all slime inside!

 

Anyway here’s the recipe if you would like to try it.

Adapted from The Everyday Chicken Cookbook

 

  • 4 small chicken breasts, skinned
  • GF flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • sprig of parsley for garnish

 

Lightly pound chicken chicken breasts to flatten them. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.

Heat butter in large pan until it bubbles. Place chicken in pan. Cook over moderate heat for 3-4 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Turn chicken over. Reduce heat to medium low, and continue cooking for 9-12 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serve immediately garnished with a little parsley and a side of egg plant fries.
