How to make it

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Trim off any fat or membranes from the chicken breasts. Pound the thicker ends lightly to flatten to an even thickness.
  • 2. Dredge the chicken breast in the flour; shake off any excess. In a large nonreactive skillet, melt 4 tablespoons of the butter over moderately high heat. Add the chicken and sauté, turning once, until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. remove to a plate.
  • 3. Reduce the heat to low and add the scallions and garlic. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Increase the heat to moderately high, add the wine and boil, scraping up any browned bits, until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 4. Spread half the scallion sauce in a buttered baking dish just large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer. Add the chicken and season with the salt and pepper; drizzle on the lime juice. Cover with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle on the lime zest, parsley, and bread crumbs. Dot with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
  • 5. Bake the chicken in the top third of the oven for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is white throughout but still juicy. Serve at once over fresh pasta.
