1 to 1.5 lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts
seasoned bread crumbs
juice of 1-2 lemons (fresh lemons) Depends on how much lemon flavor you want.
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup dry sherry *
2-3 chicken bullion cubes
Flatten chicken with a meat tenderizer so it is all the same thickness. It will cook better and more evenly if you don't skip this step! I usually cut each breast in half, if not smaller (quarters). Moisten with water and then coat in bread crumbs. I usually use a shallow bowl.
Brown chicken on both sides in skillet in a bit of veg. oil. Add lemon juice, sherry, water, and bullion cubes. Simmer covered for about 30 min. If needed cook for another 10 min or so without the lid to thicken the sauce.
Serve over or with white rice. The sauce is great mixed up with rice!
*I ALWAYS use dry sherry from the liquor store. It is pretty cheap, $3-4 for a bottle (if I remember correctly). I have used cooking sherry from the grocery store and it just isn't the same. Even the kids noticed the difference.
We love the sauce at my house so I always double the ingredients for the sauce. We had this for dinner earlier this week and I used 2 pans so the chicken wasn't stacked on itself. It seemed to cook faster and the sauce reduced faster this way!
