Makes 4 servings
- 4-6 chicken breast cutlets (24 oz. total) pounded flat
- 1 medium lemon (cut in half, juiced [set to the side], and seeded)
- 1 tbsp. capers
- 1 large garlic clove diced
- 1 medium shallot diced
- 3/4 cup white wine
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 lb. small red potatoes
- 1.5 tbsp. of Kosher salt
- 2 long sprigs of fresh rosemary
- Salt & pepper for seasoning
- Non-stick cooking spray
Wash red potatoes and cut into quarters. Place potato quarters in a bowl. Dissolve Kosher salt in 4 cups of water. Pour over potatoes until completely submerged (add additional water if needed).
Let potatoes soak for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drain potatoes. Pull leaves off of the rosemary sprigs and chop very fine.
Place the potatoes back into the bowl, spray thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray, and toss them with the chopped rosemary. Bake on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
Heat a large skillet to high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of pounded chicken cutlets.
Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray and immediately start browning the cutlets on both sides.
Remove the cutlets from the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium and spray skillet again with non-stick spray.
Add shallots, garlic, capers and lemon halves. Saute until shallots start to turn translucent (make sure not to burn the garlic). Add the white wine.
Dissolve the cornstarch in the reserved lemon juice then add to skillet. Stir the sauce until all liquids are incorporated. Place cutlets back in the skillet, cover with lid, and reduce heat to low.
Cook on low for 15 minutes. Pay attention to the thickness of the sauce, add additional wine if needed.
