4chicken cutlets, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, then dusted with flour. *Note: If not using cutlets, then cut 2 large chicken breasts in half (horizontally), place between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with meat mallet until thin.*
2Tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
1/2cupfresh ripe tomatoes, chopped
2Tablespoonsheavy whipping cream
1/3cupscallions or green onions, sliced (For Garnish)
2cupsLinguine or Fettuccine pasta(cooked according to pkg. directions)
In a non-stick skillet, heat the 2 Tablespoons oil to medium-high. When oil is hot, saute the cutlets on both sides until golden brown (this only takes a few minutes on each side). Remove the chicken cutlets to a platter (and keep warm); drain the fat from the pan.
REMOVE THE SKILLET FROM THE FLAME OR COOK TOP and add the vodka to "deglaze" the skillet (It is VERY important not to blow yourself up, so remember to do this off the heat!)
After adding the vodka to the skillet away from the flame, put the skillet back on the stove.
Continue stirring (to get any tasty bits up from the bottom of the skillet) and cook the vodka until it is nearly evaporated.
Add the chicken broth and lemon juice to the pan.
Add the chicken cutlets back into the pan. Cook on each side for another minute. Remove the cutlets; place them on top of hot pasta on the serving platter or individual plates.
Finish the sauce by adding the chopped tomatoes and whipping cream. Heat through, then spoon the sauce over the cutlets.
Garnish the chicken with the scallions. Serve and enjoy!
The calorie calculation includes half a cup of pasta per person, plus the chicken and sauce.
