This recipe comes from my great grandma, who maybe named it thusly? Or maybe that was always its name? Either way, it is, indeed, one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make.

Remember when I wrote a cautionary tale about cast iron? Allow me to review:
Rust is not your friend.
I know. This is shocking news to you all.
I’m happy to report that picture up there is all the same pan. A bit of an improvement, yes?
The folks at Lodge told me that [...]
This recipe originally came from here, but has lived in a binder in my kitchen for years now. This is good chicken. Man catching chicken even. It’s crispy and juicy and lemony and fabulous. I gave this recipe to my sister a few years back and she’s married now. SEE?? Try this: Print Chicken Française (lemon chicken)
1-2 pounds boneless chicken breast halves or thin chicken cutlets
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp plus 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp plus 1/4 tsp black pepper
3 large eggs
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice plus 1 whole lemon, thinly sliced
If using chicken breasts, pound to 1/4 inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap (I hate pounding chicken so I use the thin cutlets)
Combine flour, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper in a shallow dish, and dredge chicken, patting to evenly coat with flour mix; set aside
Beat eggs in another dish and set aside
Heat oil in heavy skillet (preferably cast iron, of course) over medium heat until hot but not yet smoking
Working in batches, dip floured chicken into eggs, making sure chicken is well coated, then let excess drip back into bowl; carefully ease chicken into hot oil and cook, turning once, till both sides are golden brown and chicken is cooked through — this will take about three minutes a side or so
When cooked, transfer chicken to paper towel lined plate and tent with foil or put in the oven set at its lowest setting (i.e. a very slow oven — does anyone still say that?)
After all chicken is fried and set to keep warm, pour oil out of skillet (I use an old coffee can for the oil), then set the pan over low heat and melt the butter in the skillet
When butter is melted and stops foaming add wine, chicken broth and lemon juice. Crank the heat up a bit and boil, uncovered, stirring to release all the yummy brown bits that are stuck to the bottom of your pan. Season with remaining salt and pepper (1/4 tsp. of each)
Remove paper towels from chicken plate, then spoon sauce over chicken; top with sliced lemon and serveSchema/Recipe SEO Data Markup by ZipList Recipe Plugin2.2http://oneparticularkitchen.com/2010/04/27/chicken-francaise/Copyright One Particular Kitchen – All Rights Reserved
This is another one of those recipes that I have written down on a scrap of paper and tucked away. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s so yummy.
It’s also what I had for breakfast this morning. Is that wrong? It’s fruit, people.
Try this. Seriously. Gather:
1 skillet (I [...]
This was one of the prettiest dishes! We had a couple straggler peppers in the garden and some yummy skirt steak in the fridge. Add in some shrimp, some onions, some mojo sauce and a squeeze of lime, and life is good.
It was the weekend so the Yankee and I made [...]
This, like a lot of my recipes, is cobbled together from so many different recipes and word of mouth that I’m not even sure where it started. It involves my Mama’s concoction of spices, though, so it’s awesome. And spicy. Feel free to tone down the spices and add more later if it looks [...]
I have a new toy! After doing a few batches of flour tortillas rolled out by hand, I realized that, um, I’m not very good at rolling out an actual circle. I bought this cast iron tortilla press from Amazon and I love it! I went with cast iron rather than lighter weight aluminum because [...]
This is a perfect meal to throw together during the middle of the week. Quick, easy, and so delicious!
You will need:
chicken — I used three boneless, skinless chicken breasts dough — your refrigerator dough, homemade dough, or even store bought barbecue sauce cheese
Start with the chicken: three chicken breasts, [...]
A couple months ago I bought the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking. It’s nigh onto life changing.
Have you ever looked at the clock and realized it’s 5:00 and you were going to make a loaf of crusty bread for supper but [...]
With bathing suit season upon us, you may be thinking it’s time to lighten things up a bit. Try some grilled fish, some raw veggies, some fresh fruit.
Or you may be thinking that life is short, and you really should eat a big ol’ mess of Krispy Kreme bread pudding.
It’s always [...]
