Chicken Breast with Garlic and Parsley

This super-fast weeknight dish from French Master Jacques Pépin is a riff on a classic preparation of frog legs. Pépin dusts the chicken with Wondra, a super-fine flour, before cooking to give the chicken a crispy crust.

  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4


  • Three 7-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons Wondra flour
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. Dry the chicken thoroughly with paper towels. In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with the flour and season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the chicken and cook over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Add the parsley and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer the chicken to 4 plates and serve with lemon wedges.
