    Prepare rice according to directions.

    Dust chicken with potato starch.

    In a flat container mix together eggs and enough parmesan cheese to create a thick batter; something like pancake batter.

    Dip breasts in batter and cook at medium to med-high heat in a little olive oil, brown a little on both sides.

    Remove all chicken to a platter, and place in a warm oven.

    In same skillet increase heat to a med-high and lightly brown the garlic.

    Add enough wine to deglaze pan with wine, and let it boil down for a few minutes.

    Add broth and butter, and cook until butter melts.

    Blend in the parsley.

    Add lemon juice to taste taste.

    Thicken if desired.

    Serve over chicken and rice, and garnish of lemon wedges and parmesan cheese, as desired.
