Lemon-Cilantro Chicken Scaloppine (Scallopine or Scallopini)

22 mins (prep 10, cooking 12)
14 ingredients
4 servings
I searched 'Zaar for this and did not find a recipe like this. The spelling of "scaloppine" is per the original recipe. Hopefully people can still find it if the other spellings (scallopine and scallopini) fit in the title. :) My sister sent me the link for this; it's from myrecipes.com but I'm posting here because 'Zaar is really the only place I like to go for recipes. Also I wanted to streamline this a bit. On myrecipes.com, the recipe is posted in two parts; Basic Chicken Scaloppine and the lemon-cilantro addition. My favorite part about this is that it contains ingredients that are safe for my IBS. My second fave part, my sister says her 5-year old daughter (my first niece!) loves this stuff. Copied from the site, but reworded as necessary for 'Zaar's preferences. Serving size per original recipe, but I've approximated prep and cook times. I couldn't figure out how to separate the ingredient list for the Basic Chicken Scaloppine and the Lemon-Cilantro part, so I noted it in the directions. I hope to try this tomorrow. Please let me know how it turns out for you. It appears to be different from other scaloppine recipes posted here. ETA: I just made this tonight; bf really loved this. For the 2 of us, I used only 2 chicken breasts and just over half the amt of flour and a bit less oil, but I kept all other ingreds the same. Bf thought it wasn't nice of me to not make him 2 breasts, that's how much he enjoyed this! I loved this too, and will make this often. I did leave off lemon wedge, and it wasn't really missed. The flavors were wonderful!
