Today, I am presenting you with an amazing, mouth-watering, divine chicken recipe. You will make it once, then again, then again and again because you will never want to eat anything else once you taste this chicken.
The recipe comes, compliments of my favourite chefs in the whole wide world, Julia Child.
You may think her recipes are so hard but the way she (and her colleagues) wrote this book, hard is the last word I would use to describe them. Some of them are tedious, but not hard, and this chicken is neither tedious nor hard to make.
The recipe is called Supremes de Vollaille a Brun or (in English) Chicken Breasts Sauteed in Butter.
I cut the recipe in half to suit the cook making enough for only 2 servings.
You will need:
For the chicken…
- 2 chicken breasts (supremes en francais)
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons clarified butter (please see my post on clarified butter)
For the sauce…
- 2 tablespoons clarified butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoons minced parsley
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Measure out 1/2 cup flour onto a plate. I use a paper plate so I can throw it out easily after instead of having to wash stuck flour off a plate.
Season both sides of both chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Place the chicken on the plate with the flour and coat the whole breast. Shake off all the excess flour so there is only a thin coat.
Then measure out (roughly) the clarified butter into a frying pan.
Add the chicken and DO NOT TOUCH for approximately 5 minutes.
In the meantime, mince your parsley and squeeze your lemon.
Now, flip your chicken and again DO NOT TOUCH IT for another 3 or 4 minutes.
It is starting to look yummmmy. Take the chicken out of the pan to rest on a plate but keep the pan on the stove. We are going to tackle the super easy sauce next…
Add the 2 tablespoons of butter to the pan. Scrape up all those delicious chicken pieces and let the butter heat in the pan for a minute or two. It should just start turning a light brown.
Remove the pan from the stove and add in the lemon and the parsely.
Then pour this sauce over the chicken.
Et, Voila! Enjoy. You will never be the same after eating this chicken!!!
