This easy weeknight chicken scallopini is perfect for nights like this. It is delicious and so easy to prepare.
It’s the best of the best in my collection of 30 minute meals. Weeknights are such a busy time in our house.
There seems to be so much going on and not a lot of time left for preparing dinner.
Treat your Family to Chicken Scallopini
Don’t let the time making this chicken scallopini fool you. The chicken is moist and delicious and the pan sauce is worthy of sharing with guests.
I always buy boneless skinless chicken breasts when they are on sale, so that I can pull them out for busy nights. This cut takes so little time to cook. It is perfect for a busy weeknight.
The hardest part of this recipe is just pounding the chicken so that they will cook quickly, but some saran wrap and a meat tenderizer makes that easy.
If you love Italian styled meals styled meals that are ready in a flash but full of flavor, give this one a try!
Serve this with a side salad, or some home made garlic bread for a wonderful meal that your family will ask for again and again!
