Total Time: 30 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :

  • 4 (5 oz) chicken breasts*, pounded to an even 1/3-inch thickness
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, sliced into 1 Tbsp pieces, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions :

  • Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Place flour in a shallow dish then dredge both sides of chicken breasts in flour, one at a time.
  • Heat 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter, let butter melt, then add in chicken breasts in a single layer.
  • Sear until golden brown on bottom, about 4 – 5 minutes then flip and continue to cook until chicken registers 165 degrees in center, about 4 – 5 minutes longer.
  • Transfer chicken to a plate while leaving any little bit of excess oil in pan.
  • Reduce to medium heat, add garlic and saute 20 seconds, or until just lightly golden brown, then pour in chicken broth while scraping browned bits up.
  • Pour in lemon juice then bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat slightly and let simmer until liquid has reduced by about half, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in remaining 3 Tbsp butter and lemon zest, stir to melt butter.
  • Return chicken to skillet, spoon sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley. Serve warm.
