Meyer Lemon Parmesan Chicken

Chicken breasts are coated in a crispy panko/Meyer lemon/Parmesan cheese breading, pan sauteed and finished with faux Hollandaise sauce. Simple and delicious!

Ingredients

  • For the chicken:
  • 4 - 4oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Eggbeaters
  • 3/4 cup plain panko bread crumbs
  • 1-2 tsp. Meyer lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1 TBS dried or fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 TBS olive oil or corn oil
  • For the Faux Hollandaise sauce:
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise (I used the Olive oil kind)
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Juice of half a Meyer Lemon
  • 2 TBS unsalted butter, melted
  • Kosher salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Pour the Eggbeaters into another shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, combine the panko, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 black pepper, Meyer lemon zest, parsley, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.
  2. Heat a large skillet over med-high heat. Add the oil. Take the chicken, once piece at a time, and first lightly coat in flour mixture, then eggbeaters, then panko mixture and put into hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
  3. Cook on the first side for about 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown, flip, and cook on the other side until golden brown and chicken is done (internal temperature of 170 degrees F).
  4. Remove chicken to platter and hold in warm oven while you prepare the sauce.
  5. To make sauce: Whisk the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Meyer lemon juice and melted butter together in small bowl. Heat mixture in microwave for 1 minute on HIGH or until sauce is warm.
  6. Serve chicken with sauce. Enjoy!
