About this recipe: Thin, breaded chicken breasts topped with a flavourful lime-butter sauce. Pounding the breasts doesn't take long and the resulting tender chicken is worth it.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets - pounded to 6mm thickness
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 70g dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill

  1. Coat chicken breasts with egg, and dip in breadcrumbs. Place on a wire rack, and allow to dry for about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Place chicken into the pan, and fry for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove to a platter, and keep warm.
  3. Drain fat from the pan, and squeeze in lime juice. Cook over low heat until it boils. Add butter, and stir until melted. Season with chives and dill. Spoon sauce over chicken, and serve immediately.
