Please Comment - What to do about oversalted chicken?

blancadog1 | Aug 3, 2008 10:22 PM

The boss's wife fell and broke both of her arms and my midwestern values require me to take a meal over to their house. I settled on a sauted chicken with vegs in wine sauce, lemon pesto and a salad. I sprinkled both sides of the chicken breast with sea salt, then dredged in flour and sauted, added other veggies and wine and cooked to completion. But horrors! I tried the finished product and I had sprinkled way too much salt on the chicken. (I will never add salt before dredging again...) I don't have any more chicken in the house, or I would make it again, minus the salt. I already told them I would bring this over tomorrow. Is there anything I can do? Would you bring the salty chicken over? Any chance it might fade overnight?

Any and all advice and suggestions are appreciated!
