Why I Love This Recipe
This is a gorgeous presentation with a delightfully fresh flavor. Be sure to deglaze the pan with the vodka off heat.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 Chicken cutlets
2 T vegetable oil
¼ cup Vodka
½ cup chicken broth
2 T fresh lemon juice
½ cup of chopped / diced tomatoes
2 T heavy cream
1/3 cup scallions, sliced thin
Season cutlets with salt and pepper, then dust with flour. Coat a sauté pan with nonstick spray, add 2 T vegetable oil, and heat over medium high heat.
Saute: cutlets on both sides. Transfer to a platter; pour off fat from the pan.
Deglaze with vodka (AWAY FROM OPEN FLAME); cook until nearly evaporated. Add broth and lemon juice. Return cutlets to pan and cook on each side for 1 minute. Transfer cutlets to a warm plate.
Finish sauce with chopped tomatoes and cream. Heat through, then pour over the cutlets.
