  3. In the meantime, get the chicken breast pieces out of the brine and pat them with towels or tissues to remove excess liquid.
  4. In another bowl beat the eggs.
  5. In a flat bowl pour some flour.
  6. Combine the bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese. Also, mix in salt and pepper.
  7. Now to prepare the chicken, first coat each fillet with the flour then with the beaten eggs, and in the end with the prepared Parmesan mixture.
  8. Let the fillets stand for some time until you prepare the butter sauce.
  9. Melt the butter on medium heat in a small saucepan. Add vinegar or wine and let it simmer. Add in sugar, salt, lemon juice, and then the heavy cream. Whisk well. Cook for 8-10 minutes on low heat.
