Buttered Chicken

This week's bookmarked recipe is from a cookbook called "Simple chicken recipes" that I bought in Tesco quite some time ago for 96p and after looking through it had bookmarked a few then left it to gather dust for a while. I needed a quick and tasty dinner this week, and fancied something different from my usual quick dinners and this was the result: buttered chicken.

Absolutely delicious! I will definitely be doing this again.

Buttered chicken

Serves 2


2 chicken breasts
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Pepper
Flour (about 1/3 cup)
2-3 tbsp butter
1 tsp dried parsley

1. Place the chicken in a sandwich bag and flatten by bashing with a rolling pin.
2. Mix the flour, salt and flour on a plate then dredge the chicken through it until it is well covered.
3. Melt the butter in a frying pan on a medium high heat then add the chicken, leave to cook for 5 minutes
4. Turn the chicken over and reduce the heat. Sprinkle the parsley over the top and leave to cook for 5-8 minutes until cooked through.
