Chicken Francese is a great breaded chicken entree that can usually be found in Italian restaurants. It typically is a really rich and unfortunately unhealthy meal, but for this recipe I changed things around a little bit to make it slightly healthier, without sacrificing taste.
You can cook some pasta tossed with garlic and olive oil to make this a complete meal. Definitely think you will enjoy this!
