Growing up, one of my favorite recipes from my mom was her chicken francese. If you’re not familiar with chicken francese, it’s chicken cutlets that are dredged in flour and fried in a lemon-butter sauce.
This recipes for Tofu Francese uses extra-firm tofu as a substitute for the chicken in my mom’s recipe. This recipe was so much fun to create because of how close it came to the flavors I was looking for. Francese sauce is a buttery lemon sauce and can be found on the menu at most Italian restaurants.
