4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lbs.)
1/2 c. flour
salt & pepper
4 T. butter
1 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 T. cornstarch
2 green onions
1 freshly sliced lemon
Place each chicken piece between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound lightly until 1/4″ thick. Remove plastic wrap.
Salt & pepper each breast, then coat with flour.
In a large skillet, cook chicken in hot butter over medium heat until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.
In a small bowl, stir together chicken broth, lemon juice and cornstarch. Add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in green onions, serve chicken with sauce and add lemon slices for garnish.
I placed the chicken back into the sauce and let it cook on low for a few more minutes. I like my chicken cooked thoroughly!
I served it with asparagus in butter, lemon & parmesan and long grain & wild rice.
I’d give this meal an 8. I use Land O’ Lakes Light Butter, just to cut some calories (the nutritional information is with real butter). Also, I’m used to lemon chicken having a sweet taste to it, this isn’t. However, once dinner was finished, I took the leftover sauce and added a little Stevia to it…I liked it better. Turned it into an A!
