Chicken Scallopini Recipe


I had tried a recipe for chicken scallopini (Scaloppine) before and did not really care for it. I decided to give it another shot with a different recipe and it turned out fantastic. This dish is served at many restaurants and I would say is fairly popular. If you are not familiar with it, I believe it is an Italian based dish. For this recipe, the sauce is where it’s at. The sauce basically consists of butter, lemon juice, white wine, and heavy cream. All of these ingredients can be adjusted to your taste. Another great option if you want to add more flavor is to add crumbled bacon of pancetta on top. This is a dish that is sure to impress almost anyone with your cooking skills. Enjoy.

  1. This looks great! Does it have a similar taste to Chicken Piccata? I just made that this past weekend and I notice similar ingredients, except for the heavy cream.

  2. I may come off as a little slow, but my only question is…when you said melt butter in the same pan, is that with our without the previous oil and butter used to fry the chicken?

  3. I would drain the previous oil and butter used to fry the chicken. Use the same pan though to get some of the flavor from the chicken bits stuck to the pan. I hope this helps.
