Chicken with Lemon-Chive Sauce

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Description

This dish is quick and easy for weeknights and fancy enough to be served to guests. Light Serving suggestion: chicken breasts over a bed of pasta and a side of steamed broccoli.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breast, split in half lengthwise
  • 12 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • salt and pepper
  • Sauce
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, about 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon zest
  • 3 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 tbsp dried chives (1 tsp fresh)

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the chicken breast pieces and fry about 4 minutes on each side, until done and are golden brown. Meat should read 165 degrees on a meat thermometer when inserted at the thickest part of the breast.
  2. Remove the cooked chicken breasts from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, bring the chicken broth to a boil, then add the lemon juice, sugar and lemon zest.
  4. Bring the mixture back to a boil.
  5. In a separate small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water, then stir into the lemon sauce.
  6. Stirring continuously, cook until thickened. Adjust sugar and lemon to taste.
  7. Add chives and stir.
  8. Place chicken breasts on a serving plate and spoon sauce over the breasts.


Notes

* While chicken breasts are very cold, slice each breast in half lengthwise to make 2 thin chicken breast pieces. This will allow faster and more even cooking.


Nutrition

  • Serving Size: 2 half chicken breasts
