By Leslie Blythe Chicken, French Searing
April 25, 2021 I had this divine Chicken Paillard in the desert last weekend at a French/Japanese fusion restaurant. It was absolutely delicious. Paillard is a French term for a boneless piece of meat that has been pounded thin or butterflied. The process of pounding the meat tenderizes the chicken and it cooks faster with less moisture loss. Prep: 15 mins Cook: 10 mins Yields: 4 Servings Ingredients 4 thinly sliced chicken breast
1 teaspoon lemon zest, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons shallots, chopped
¾ cup reduced sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped Directions 1Place chicken fillets between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using either a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat mallet, flatten fillets to ¼-inch thickness.
2Combine flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper in a shallow dish. Set aside.
3In a mixing bowl, mix lemon zest and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Coat fillets with the lemon zest mixture.
4Lightly dredge seasoned fillets in flour mixture. Place floured fillets on a plate and discard used flour.
5Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a 12-inch skillet. Heat over medium-high heat. Place fillets in skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side or cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F. Remove Chicken to a platter and set aside.
6Add shallots to skillet. Sauté for 30 seconds. Add chicken broth to deglaze the skillet. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Turn off heat and stir butter and thyme into sauce. close full screen 00:00 0 Reviews Cancel replyYour review ...All fields are required to submit a review.Your name ...
