Yummy Chicken and Thor

Work was busy today and I was happy to get home and take Evie out for a fun walk. We went back over to UC Berkeley campus for her run and roll around .She loves it there! We don't even have to go into campus, we just stay on the front lawns and it's great.

I think I found THE pizza spot in town. We walked down University Avenue tonight, filled with bars and restaurants, and saw Bobby G's Pizzeria PACKED. We will have to check it out. We have literally every ethnic restaurant on the planet here - Thai, Ethiopian, African-Caribbean, Peruvian, Indian, Brazillian....Every place seems good because they are always busy!

We had an amazzzzzing dinner tonight. Skinnytaste recipe delivered again tonight with Chicken Francese! It was SO good - lemony, creamy, and delicious!! Dipping the broccoli in the sauce made the side dish that much better, too!

  • 4 large (32 oz) chicken breast halves, thinly sliced in 3 (12 cutlets total)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup egg whites, beaten
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1/2 lemon sliced thin
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 can low sodium fat free chicken broth
  • cooking spray
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 3 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp butter


Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the flour in a bowl, and the beaten egg whites in another bowl.

Heat a very large non stick pan over medium heat. When hot spray with cooking spray to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.

Lightly flour chicken, then dip in eggs and add to the hot pan a few at a time. Sautechicken 2-3 minutes on each side. When cooked, transfer onto a plate. Spray the pan again and repeat until all chicken has been cooked.

Once all chicken is cooked, place the chicken broth in the bowl with the remaining flour and whisk. Add to the pan along with the juice of the lemon, white wine, lemon slices, parsley and butter and simmer on low heat for about 2 minutes so it reduces slightly and thickens. Turn off heat. Return chicken to the pan to combine with the sauce.Serve immediately with a nice big salad.

To finish our night, we watched The Avengers on Netflix DVD--obviously, Erik's pick. One funny thing in the movie is that I recognized one of the Superheros....Thor! The only way I knew him was from the 80's movie....Adventures in Babysitting.

Who remembers this!?
