Arrange the chicken breasts for this recipe next to each other on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and pound them with a flat meat mallet until they are 1/4-inch thick. Make the seasoned flour mixture by combining flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Add 3 tablespoons of water to 4 large beaten eggs in a separate bowl to make the egg wash. Coat the cutlets in the flour mixture, and then dip them in the egg wash one at a time, allowing any excess to drip off before adding to a hot pan containing extra-virgin olive oil.

Using the same pan that was used to cook the chicken, add 1/2 lemon cut into slices to the pan, and cook until they release their scent before adding 1/2 cup white wine, 1 cup chicken broth and the juice of half of a lemon, and allow the sauce to cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the flour-coated butter until fully dissolved, and add the chicken back into the pan. Let the entire dish simmer for 2 minutes, and serve with a garnish of chopped parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
