Hello everyone! Sorry it’s been a few weeks since my last post. I had oral surgery recently that left me on a soft food diet. Needless to say, none of the stuff I ate was worth blogging or wasn’t made by me. My daughter was kind enough to send home a care package that included soup and ice cream! Finally, a legitimate excuse to eat ice cream!
Anyway, I am slowly transitioning to regular food. So my first regular meal is this chicken dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. And if you are like me and love quick and easy recipes, this dish can be completed in about 30 minutes.
- 2 chicken breasts
- salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
- lemon slices for garnish
- Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Combine flour, garlic powder and onion powder on a plate or bowl.
- Dredge chicken, shaking off excess. Reserve 1 tablespoon flour and put in small bowl with 2 tablespoons cold water. Set aside.
- Place butter, olive oil and minced garlic in skillet over medium high heat. When butter is melted, cook chicken until golden brown on both sides. About 4 minutes each side. Or until juices run clear. Remove chicken breasts from pan.
- Add chicken broth to skillet and bring to a simmer. Scrape the pan to mix brown bits into the liquid.
- Add honey, lemon juice and soy sauce and mix. Add reserved flour and water slurry to skillet. Simmer until sauce thickens.
- Return chicken to skillet. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Turn chicken over and let simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
- Garnish with fresh lemon slices and gravy from skillet.
