Let's Get Started.....
Clean chicken and tenderize if needed, with a mallet.

Pour generous amount of flour in a pan and add salt and pepper to season. Mix well.

In a small bowl, add three eggs and stir.

Add 1 tbsp. of water to eggs.

You will now have egg wash to dip you chicken in.

Add vegetable oil to pan (enough to cover the bottom of the pan pass the inner rim).  Let oil get hot on medium heat.

Dredge chicken in flour to cover all pieces thoroughly.

Now dip chicken in egg wash.

Now add chicken to your pan and let fry 3 minutes on one side.

Turn and fry 3 minutes on the other side.

Remove from pan and place in a pan to set until all pieces are fried.


1/4 cup of olive oil...

Slice your lemon in half and then slice as many thin round pieces as you can from one half of the lemon only.  Place the other half to the side for now.

Add olive oil and lemon slices to another pan.

Turn heat up to high and let the lemons fragrant into the olive oil for about 5 minutes. Turn heat off and remove lemons.  Place lemons on top of chicken.  Leave olive oil in pan and set aside for later.

Now measure out a 1/2 cup of the cooking wine...

Measure out 1 cup of the chicken broth...

Squeeze as much
juice as you can
from the other
half of the lemon
into a small cup...

Next mix together the softened stick of butter with 1/2 tbsp. of flour.  Mix well.

Now add everything to the olive oil. Add the cooking wine, broth, lemon juice and butter w/flour.  Turn heat to high and stir to mix everything together.
