Chicken Cutlets Drizzled with Sage Brown Butter Mayonnaise

This decadent cutlet will make a perfect addition to your entertaining repertoire. Serve them with small roasted potatoes and asparagus for a restaurant meal you can make at home.


  • Serves: 6
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 1 cup (250 mL) white wine
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) black peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 thin sliced chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb/550 g)
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, divided
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice
  • pinch each salt and fresh ground pepper


  1. In a shallow saucepan bring wine, onion, peppercorns and bay leaf to a simmer. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add chicken and poach lightly, turning once for about 5 minutes. Remove to plate and discard liquid.

  2. Dredge chicken cutlets in seasoned breadcrumbs.

  3. Heat 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the butter and oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brown cutlets on both sides until no longer pink inside and internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Keep warm.

  4. Melt remaining butter and sage in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes or until light golden brown in colour. Let cool slightly.

  5. In a small bowl whisk together egg yolk and lemon juice. Slowly drizzle in butter-sage mixture while whisking into egg mixture until smooth and thickened slightly. Whisk in salt and pepper and spoon over cutlets to serve.

When drizzling in the brown butter, try not to whisk in the butter solids at the bottom of the pan.
