Lemon Sage Chicken

Lemon sage chicken

It’s my favorite time of the month…time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month, I was assigned to Tara’s Multicultural Table. Tara is a stay at home mom to her adorable son, and as the name suggests, her blog is a place where she writes about food from all over the globe. Tara was born in Japan and moved to Germany as a young child, before moving to the US. Her husband’s family is Filipino. With all of those cultures deeply rooted in both of their families, I would say that Tara is an expert at multicultural cooking! Flipping through the recipes in her blog prove that. She highlights recipes from every square inch of the world, which as you could imagine, made it very difficult to choose just one. While I had my eye on Galatke (Serbian Semolina Baklava), Colcannon, and Yachae Kalguksu (Korean Knife Noodle & Vegetable Soup), I chose this chicken dish because we still have plenty of sage left in the garden that I wanted to use up before winter comes. While I’m sure that we would have loved those other dishes, this lemon sage chicken was absolutely delicious! Joel declared it one of the best meals he has had in a long time. While chicken isn’t usually one of his favorites, and we are not usually ones for seconds, when he finished his plate, he said that he wished he had another! This chicken was incredibly flavorful, and quick cooking, which is perfect for weeknight meals. I’m so glad that I have plenty more sage in my garden. I foresee this meal gracing our table quite a bit more before the snow starts to fly. Thanks for the delicious meal, Tara! 

1 1/4 pounds Chicken Breasts, boneless and skinless
Salt and Pepper
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/3 cup Flour
2 Eggs
1 Lemon, juiced
4 Sage Leaves
1/2 cup Dry White Wine (such as sauvignon blanc)
3/4 cup Chicken Broth
2 tablespoons Butter
Additional Lemon Wedges, for garnish 

Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally. Place between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound out the chicken with a mallet until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Season both sides lightly with salt and pepper. In a rimmed plate, mix the flour with a pinch of salt. In another rimmed plate, whisk the egg and lemon juice. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Coat each piece of chicken in flour, then dip in the egg mixture to coat the entire surface. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook until the bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the chicken to cook the other side and add the sage leaves. Once the chicken has cooked through, remove and set on a paper towel lined plate. Add the wine and chicken broth to the skillet and increase the heat to medium-high, stirring to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. When the liquid is reduced by half, add the butter. and cook until sightly thickened. Serve the chicken topped with the sage leaves, sauce, and lemon wedges.
