If you love lemon, this chicken recipe is a winner. I loved the lemony sauce. The chicken stayed pretty crisp thanks to the flour crust. It was a easy recipe to put together, too. Thank you!.
- 4 (16 to 20 ounces) boneless skinless chicken breasts (4-5 ounces for each breast)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1/4 cup wine (Vinho Verde, or dry white wine)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 scallion, finely sliced
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Cut the chicken breasts in half. Place them between 2 pieces of saran wrap and pound to about 1/4 inch thick.
Season with salt and pepper and coat them lightly with the flour in a bowl.
Heat the olive oil and butter on high heat in a large saute pan. Cook the chicken on medium high heat for about 3 minutes or longer on each side until they turn a light golden brown, remove them from the pan and set them aside.
De-glaze the pan with wine, lemon juice and chicken broth and let it cook down for about 1 minute.
Return the chicken to the pan and let it cook in the lemon sauce for another 3-4 minutes on medium heat to incorporate the lemon flavor.
Turn heat to low, add the scallion, oregano and the lemon zest and cook for about 1 minute. The sauce will thicken as it cooks.
If you find the sauce too thick add a little more chicken broth.
