Tasty Tuesday

I wrote a while back about receiving my two new cookbooks from Cooking Light. I'm super excited because their recipes are always wonderful and they're healthy! As part of my New Year reflections, I'm trying to make sure that my body is healthy and loved. So tonight Mr. Potts and I will be dining on Chicken Francais. If it turns out anywhere as tasty as the picture in my cookbook, I should be in heaven!The recipe - if you're interested.

  • 3/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 (6 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Cooking spray (I use my olive oil mister)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a dish
  2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, and pound to 1/4 inch thinness. Discard wrap & dredge chicken in flour & dip in egg substitute mixture.
  3. Heat 1 1/2 tsp oil in large non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray (olive oil spray) over medium heat. Add 4 chicken breast halves; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan, and keep warm. Wipe drippings from pan & repeat with remaining chicken & 1 1/2 tsp oil.
  4. Melt butter in pan; add 1/4 cup wine and 3 tbsp lemon juice. Bring to a boil & cook 10 seconds. Serve immediately over chicken.

Oh Wow! This turned out so yummy! Mr. Potts said this was a definite to add to our rotation. I smiled as I told him, "Baby, this is just the beginning!"
