I love having cooked chicken in my fridge because then I can make so much from it. Sometimes I make a batch of breaded chicken cutlets but this time I dressed the cutlets with lots of herbs de Provence and let them cook in chicken lemon broth.
First I simply browned them in a bit of olive oil and garlic then added chicken broth and lemon and let the cutlets cook until done which will vary according to the thickness.
They were flavorful, fresh and a perfect light lunch eaten alone or with a bit of arugula dressed in the pan broth. It couldn’t be more simple or satisfying than this.
I think I may use the rest of the chicken to make a curry chicken salad…or whatever I’m in the mood for at the moment.
Can easily be doubled or tripled
