A few months ago, I shared a recipe for Any Day Chicken Sauté from The Bonne Femme Cookbook from Wini Moranville. It’s still one of my go-to recipes for weeknight dinners. Given that it is such a staple recipe, I thought I would re-share the recipe, this time with pictures!
This chicken recipe is really straightforward and simple, but the flavor is impeccable. I typically follow the recipe as is, but last time I swirled in a few tablespoons of Trader Joe’s fig butter into the sauce–AMAZING!
This is a great recipe to have in your back pocket for an evening that requires a step up from your usual leftovers when friends or family decide to stop by. They’ll leave thinking you eat delicious, French-inspired meals every night. As for the leftovers? That can just be our little secret.
Check back here tomorrow for weekend reading!
Any Day Chicken Sauté
Place the chicken breasts, one at a time, between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4 inch thickness (I personally skipped this step, but just know that the chicken will take slightly longer to cook).Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
