LEMON PECORINO CHICKEN

CHICKEN
8 LARGE chicken tenderloins
½ cup AP flour
2 LARGE eggs
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
Zest from 1 LARGE lemon
FRESH ground sea salt and black pepper
¼ cup FRESH grated Pecorino Romano cheese
¼ cup avocado oil
2 tablespoons butter

  • Flatten all the chicken tenderloins to an even thicknesses.
  • Set up dredging station with flour, beaten eggs, and one with a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, lemon zest, and grated Pecorino Romano cheese.
  • Coat each tenderloin in the flour, then in beaten eggs, and then the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat.
  • Sauté the tenderloins 3-5 minutes on both sides until golden and cooked through. Work in batches if necessary – do not crowd the pan.
  • Drain on paper towels.

SAUCE
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 tablespoon WONDRA flour
1 tablespoon FINELY minced garlic
¼ cup WHOLE milk
¾ cup heavy cream
¼ cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter

  • In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Sauté minced garlic until fragrant.
  • Whisk in flour.
  • Gradually add milk, heavy cream and chicken broth.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a SLOW boil.
  • Cook 3-5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and butter.
  • Serve with FRESH pasta or mashed potatoes.
  • Drizzle the sauce over the chicken before serving. I made my sauce more like a gravy (thicker, but just as tasty) this time.
