  • For Chicken
  • 1 pound chicken scallopine slices
  • 1/2 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil EVOO
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • For Sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour
  • Juice of 1 large lemon 1/4 cup
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare Chicken
  • Rinse and pat dry chicken.
  • Whisk together egg, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper until frothy and thick.
  • Spread flour on a plate. Coat the chicken with the flour and shake off the excess.
  • Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Dip the floured chicken into the egg batter and place in the hot pan. Cook in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan.
  • Cook until nicely browned about 2 minutes on each side. Repeat, adding more oil and butter as needed, until all the chicken slices are cooked. Remove to a platter and keep warm.
  • Prepare Sauce
  • Saute garlic in butter in the same large skillet.
  • Stir flour in cold water; then add to skillet.
  • Add lemon juice, as well. Continuously stir over medium-high heat to thicken gravy about 2 minutes.
  • Return chicken to the pan and cook for 1 minute to blend. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges. Serve immediately with your favorite gluten free pasta.
