  • ½ Vidalia onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter for sautéing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 4 chicken cutlets thin (or up to 6 thin cutlets)
  • cups white wine
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • a few sprigs of parsley
  • a few sprigs of thyme
  • 1 tablespoon butter for placing on top of chicken before baking


  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, stir together the 1 tablespoon of butter, olive oil, and canola oil.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent. Transfer the onion and garlic to an ovenproof casserole dish or another plate if your skillet is ovenproof.
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour.
  • Sauté the chicken on both sides just until lightly browned. Do not cook it all the way.
  • Transfer the chicken to another plate and put aside.
  • Add the white wine and chicken stock to the pan and deglaze the pan. Scrape those good flavors and let it come to a boil. Then simmer until reduced to about one-third.
  • Lay out the sautéed onions and garlic on the bottom of your ovenproof dish or skillet. Lay out some sprigs of thyme and parsley on top.
  • Lay the chicken on top. Dot with the 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • Sprinkle some salt and pepper all over the top of the chicken.
  • Cover the dish or pan tightly with aluminum foil. No steam should escape.
  • Bake about 35-40 minutes.


MARGO suggests serving the chicken with the spooned gravy and goodies on top.  It would go nicely with rice and asparagus.
