Romantic Chicken Scallopine With Saffron Cream Sauce
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
12 ingredients
4 servings
This is a recipe of Giada De Laurentiis's from (but I lessened the salt, added flour, upped the garlic, and added a sauce-thickening tip). It seems like it would be super hard, but it is really not that difficult. The first time I made it was for my husband on Valentine's Day. I had never cooked with several of the ingredients before, and except accidentally buying chicken tenders instead of chicken cutlets, it turned out just lovely. :) I also found saffron threads the cheapest at Whole Foods, almost $7.00 less expensive than the next cheapest place! I served this over angel hair pasta with green beans and garlic breadsticks, and we had Dark Chocolate Souffle for dessert.
