This is a very popular chicken dish served in most of the restaurants in Brazil.(  Pronounced as fil-lay day-Fraan-go  Aa-say-bo-laa-doh ) It is a very bland dish with no spices. Those who prefer it spicier can add a dash of tabasco sauce or chilli flakes. Chicken fillets are marinated with salt and lemon and pan fried or grilled, served with a sauteed onion mayonnaise topping. You can also replace mayonnaise with worcestershire sauce.
