Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a shallow bowl stir together All-Purpose Flour (1/3 cup), Salt (1/2 teaspoon), and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon). Set aside.
Step 2
Cut off fillet from Chicken Breast (1 pound) if attached. Slice each chicken breast horizontally into two pieces.
Step 3
Cut each piece in half, giving 4 pieces of similar size per chicken breast, plus the fillet if included.
Step 4
Place each piece, including fillet between two pieces of parchment paper. Pound with a flat mallet until 1/4" thick.
Step 5
Heat Canola Oil (1 tablespoon) a large skillet over medium high heat.
Step 6
Toss chicken pieces in the flour mixture and shake off excess. Fry half of the chicken pieces 2 minutes per side and remove to plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining Canola Oil (1 tablespoon) and chicken.
Step 7
Reduce heat to medium and add Unsalted Butter (1 tablespoon) to pan, add Shallot (1) and sauté for 1 minute until softening but not browning.
Step 8
Add White Wine (1/2 cup), stirring and scraping the pan to remove all the cooked bits. Stir in Chicken Broth (1/2 cup) and reduce for 3-4 minutes until it reduces to about half the size.
Step 9
Whisk in Dijon Mustard (2 teaspoon). Then whisk in the remaining Unsalted Butter (3 tablespoon), 1 tablespoon at a time, allowing each to incorporate before adding more.
Step 10
Stir in Lemon Juice (1 tablespoon) and chopped Tarragon (1/4 cup). Season with salt and pepper. Add chicken cutlets back to pan and spoon with sauce.
Step 11
Serve immediately.
