SCRUMPTIOUS LEMON CHICKEN 

 

1-3/4 lb. boneless chicken breast
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup chicken broth
2 lemons
2 teaspoons minced garlic (jarred)
1 tablespoon dried parsley 

Rinse chicken in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Using a sharp knife, carefully slice each chicken breast on the diagonal to make two thin breast slices. Do this to all breast pieces.

 Mix flour, salt, pepper together in a bag. Add chicken pieces to bag and shake until well coated.

Add the oil and butter to a large skillet and turn the heat to medium-high.  Let the butter melt and swirl the oil & butter with a spoon or fork on the bottom of the skillet.

Place the chicken into the  skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes on one side.

Turn chicken over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, pour 1/2 cup of chicken broth into a glass measuring cup.  Squeeze into the broth the juice of 2 lemons.  Add garlic and parsley, stirring to blend. 

Turn the heat to medium and add chicken/lemon broth mixture to the pan with chicken.  Simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes, turning the chicken occasionally.  All of the broth should be cooked away leaving a tender, moist delicious lemon chicken.  

 

EASY RICE PILAF

1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1/2 cup vermicelli or thin spaghetti, broken into small pieces

1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese


In a medium saucepan with lid, sauté onions in butter and olive oil until onions are soft.  Add rice and noodles, sauté for an additional 2 minutes.
