Chicken Francaise is the most delicious, melt-in-your-mouth goodness that will have your guests return for more. It’s also known as “Chicken Francese.” I must admit that it is an incredible recipe!
The first time I had chicken Francaise it was in a five-star restaurant and the flavour remains one of my most memorable meals. The dish is simple with basic ingredients but tastes so good, that you would think this meal comes from some fancy pants restaurant instead!

When buying chicken breasts, try to find a good medium size; you don’t want them too big. Do try and buy the best ingredients you can afford. With basic ingredient recipes, the secret is always in buying good quality ingredients.
Get a good Parmesan cheese; the best is always the authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Try and buy the flat leaf parsley, which has a better flavour.
For cooking, use a dry white wine you enjoy drinking such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or Riesling. , not that grape juice concoction you find in a cardboard box.
Ideally, you should make your own chicken stock; it makes a big difference. I usually buy a whole chicken; it saves me money, it’s healthier as I buy organic pasture chicken, and I know where it was raised. You also have the bones and carcass to make tasty chicken stock. See my stock recipe and how to break down a chicken video if unsure.
Chicken Francaise goes well with a glass of excellent wine. Enjoy it with a rich crisp dry white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay, or even a light red such as Gamay or Pinot Noir. No soda drinks, please!
Serve Chicken Francese with asparagus, spinach or green beans.
So what is chicken Francese?
It appears that Italian immigrants created Chicken Francaise, commonly known as chicken Francese, in America. As with numerous Italian chicken dishes, they were initially intended for veal but taste equally as good with chicken. But back to the name, why an American Italian dish is called “French”, maybe it’s because of all the richness of the butter, perhaps the taste of the wine sauce, who knows, but one thing for sure, the flavours are superb!
