Very nice, just finished making (and eating this recipe). Worth the trouble to make your own hollandaise sauce. The presentation is very nice and not too hard.
chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
4-6 oz pieces
salt and black pepper
|1||x||Hollandaise Sauce (Original and Authentic Version)|
Prepare the hollandaise (preferably from scratch or using a package if you must) and keep warm over hot (not too hot) water until ready to serve. (see hollandaise sauce recipe link below).
Place chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper on a cutting board and pound until very thin. This will help the chicken cook evenly.
Combine the flour, salt and pepper on a plate for coating the chicken.
Heat the butter (or olive oil) in a heavy skillet over medium high heat.
Dip the chicken pieces lightly in the seasoned flour and shake off excess.
When the butter stops foaming, add the chicken and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, until golden.
Remove to a heated serving platter as the remaining pieces are cooked.
Cover each slice of chicken with crabmeat and top with 3 asparagus spears.
Spoon some hollandaise sauce over asparagus on each plate and serve immediately.
