Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 4
    boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4
    cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon white pepper
  • 2
    tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2
    cup Progresso™ chicken broth
  • 2
    teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4
    teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
  • 2
    tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    Place 1 chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
  • 2
    In shallow bowl, mix flour, salt and pepper. Coat chicken breasts with flour mixture. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown on outside and no longer pink in center.
  • 3
    Remove chicken from skillet; cover to keep warm. Add broth, Worcestershire sauce and marjoram to skillet; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until hot. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve over chicken.

  • Often paired with veal, piccata-style lemon-pepper sauce has a bright fresh flavor that works well with chicken, too. Stirring the parsley into the sauce just before serving keeps the herb's color and taste vibrant.
  • Marjoram tastes a little like oregano. If you don't have it, you can substitute dried oregano, thyme or sage leaves.
