I've seen haddock and veal french too. All are very good when made right. Unfortunately, most places have it on the menu just to say they have it, even though it isn't very good.

I had it Grandpa Sam's an it was okay but the problem is that it's an easy dish that most places in Rochester screw up.All it is is egg battered chicken in a white wine sauce with lemon.Marsala would be with a burgundy wine.This is one of the dishes in long island that is on every Italian menu but like I said before it is sold as Chicken Francaise instead of Chicken French.

Chicken French is an ITALIAN dish..... Rochester is a very ITALIAN City. Perhaps different Italian Families make it differently... that is all I can think of.... every family has their own recipe... MAKES SENSE.... I know my family has their own FAMILY RECIPES for certain dishes..... I'm just sayin'....

I can't find it anywhere very often where we live and when we come home I usually try to have some from Proietti's in Webster! it is FANTASTIC!!!
There was also a place in Charlotte many years ago that made really great Chicken French and artichokes French!
Where in Charlotte did you get Chicken French and Artichokes French? I'm from Rochester but have moved to Charlotte and haven't had a one since!! Yum... another reminder of the good food left behind!!! Thanks!

I think the poster is talking about Charlotte the neighborhood in the city and you are talking about Charlotte NC, but if I am wrong then Mr. Dominics in Charlotte has very good "French"

I'll give you all a little lesson. If you want a real good one it's simple. Pound out some cutlets, dip them in egg wash(eggs and milk),then flour and then egg wash again. Let them sit in the fridge for about 30-40 minutes(it will be a mess). Take white wine in a medium high pan and add lemon juice (butter not essential) and add 2 cutlets at a time turning when mildly browned. Remove the two add a little more lemon and wine.You might have to remove the fried remains left over so it doesn't burn but if you do this right it will be better then most of the local places.Give it a try and get back to me.I've been eating it in long island as chicken francaise for over 20 years.
