Lemon Chicken (with pasta)       Serves 4-6

 

 

When you're looking for something light and refreshing, but filling, our

 

 

 

Lemon Chicken is the answer.  Tender chicken breasts in a flavorful

 

 

 

lemon sauce served over pasta (or rice)  is a great start to your meal.  

 

                                            

Ingredients

•  4 Tbsp all-purpose flour plus 1 Tbsp cornstarch

•  1 tsp dried parsley

•  ¼ tsp pepper

•  6 boneless chicken breast halves, with or without skin on

•  5 Tbsp butter

 

•  4 Tbsp lemon juice

•  2 tsp chicken bouillon (I like Better Than Bouillon)

•  3 cups cooked pasta

•  1 cup frozen peas (optional)

You will need a large zip bag and a large skillet.  

 

 

Instructions

1.  Combine flour, parsley and pepper in the large zip top bag.

 

 

      Add 2 of the chicken breasts to the flour mixture; shake well; 

      repeat with remaining pieces.

2.  Melt butter in the large skillet; brown chicken on both sides

 

 

      until nice and golden brown. Add the lemon juice and bouillon.

3.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender.

     

      Internal temperature should be 165°F.  Remove chicken.

 

 4.  For the sauce, add ¾ cup of water to the drippings in the

       skillet; add the frozen peas: bring to simmer for 3 minutes.    

Options

  Add cooked asparagus that has been cut into bite-sized pieces instead of

 

 

    peas.  Broccoli florets cut into small pieces would work too.

•  You could also do rice instead of pasta.
