    Tender, juicy chicken breast cutlets in an absolutely amazing lemon sauce. This simple dish looks and tastes elegant but is ready in less than 30 minutes.
    Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 20 Min

    • 1 T. butter
    • 1/2 c. dry white wine
    • juice of 1 lemon

    1. Using a meat mallet, pound the breasts into an even thickness, about 1/4" thick.  Cut in half and set aside.
    2. Place the flour, salt and pepper into a sealable bag or shallow dish.  Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour.
