6 adult portions of 1 whole chicken breast (2 pieces as they were cut in half during preparation)
6 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup all purpose flour
6 large eggs, whipped
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups sherry or white wine
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon chicken base or chicken bullion
1 lb. Angel Hair Pasta
Cut the chicken into tenders (about a 1/2 a breast per strip) and pound them out flat and even. They cook quicker this way. A meat mallet or side of a cleaver will do this job.
Pour the oil into a frying pan, add 1-2 tablespoons of butter and melt together at medium to medium high heat. (The egg should bubble on contact.) Dip the meat into the flour, covering both sides. Using a fork, dredge the meat through the egg wash, covering both sides. Place chicken into the frying pan and fry until golden brown on both sides.
Into a pan add 1 to 1/2 cups of sherry (or white wine). Add the remaining butter and the juice of two strained lemons. Also used two lemons cut into thin slices to use as a garnish and the rest gets juiced through a strainer. Add chicken stock to this (1 tablespoon chicken stock base and 1/2 cup water) to make it richer. Arrange chicken into a baking dish and pour the sauce over it.
Place lemon on top of the chicken (as a garnish) and cover with foil. Place into the oven at 225 to 250 degrees F for 15-30 minutes (to keep it warm and allow some of the juices to soak in).
Serve over Angel Hair.

I have got to try this recipe. I don’t cook with alcohol, do you have any suggestions to switch out the sherry?

You could try orange juice or pineapple juice in the same amount. It will change the flavor but should still work.
