We use our heavy duty cutting board and place 1 chicken breast at a time in a gallon size freezer bag. We they use a meat mallet and pond each breast down to between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Next, we cut the cutlets in half to make it easier to cook them. Make sure to wash everything well after handling the chicken.
Next, we gathering all of of ingredients. Season each side of the cutlets lightly with salt and pepper.
Now we dust the cutlet with light all purpose whole wheat or regular flour and shake off the excess.
In a large skillet, heat the oil and saute the cutlets for 2 minutes on each side.
Transfer the cutlets to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add the vodka to the skillet and scrap up all of the brown cooking bits. de-glaze the pan until almost all of the vodka is gone. Now, add the broth and lemon juice.
