Company Chicken

B6627DE0-1A06-498A-B52A-B21B47ECD81BThis chicken recipe is something that can out of my warped mind. Wanted a dish I could plate and serve to company. Looked thru lots of recipes and couldn’t find anything that was completely different. Did see one that dusted chicken breasts with paprika, so decided to see what I could do with paprika. Came up with this recipe. Even our kids thought it was great, so good they have even requested it for their birthday supper. Usually when I serve this to company I build the plate this way. 2/3 of the plate with rice pilaf and 1/3 with either green beans or asparagus. Then I place the chicken breast on top of the rice pilaf and spoon the sauce over it. Tonight it was just for my wife and I. We had a salad with it. The recipe is for 2 people but you can increase it easily.

2 flattened chicken breast

1 cup flour

1/4 cup paprika

3 teaspoons salt

1 and 1/2 teaspoons pepper

3 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

3 green onions split and chopped into 1 inch pieces

3 tablespoons butter

1 cup any dry white wine you like

Mix flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder together. Coat the flattened chicken breasts with the flour mixture packing the flour well into the chicken. Set aside for 1 hour. In a preheated pan on medium heat add butter, when the butter starts to brown add chicken breasts and cover. Cook for 6 minutes then turn over, add onions and wine and cover, cook for 6 more minutes. Serve and spoon sauce equally over each breast.

The most important things for this recipe is to use the right sized frying pan and to make sure you wait for the butter to brown. Brown butter takes on a completely different flavour than just melting the butter.
