Total Time: 17mins
2tbspolive or avocado oil
4chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1tbspghee, Can sub regular butter or vegan butter.
1tspdried parsley, Can sub 1 tablespoon fresh parsley.
Slice the chicken breasts horizontally. This will give you 8 thin cutlets so they'll cook faster and more evenly.
In a small bowl, stir together salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Set aside.
Add oil to a large skillet. Heat to medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add cutlets. Season the top of your cutlets with seasoning mixture. Sauté until each side has some browning and chicken is mostly cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. (Depending on the size of your chicken you may need to saute in two batches. If so, feel free to add an extra tablespoon on oil when beginning the second batch.) Once chicken is browned, remove from pan and aside.
Add ghee and minced garlic. Sauté until garlic is golden, about one minute.
Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken stock and parsley. Scrape up any bits of chicken stuck to the bottom of the pan. (Those are yummy!) Now add the chicken cutlets back to the skillet. Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.
Nutrition information is for 1 cutlet plus sauce. That is 1/2 a chicken breast because we’ve cut the breasts horizontally to create 2 cutlets from every chicken breast.
