Honey Lemon Chicken

Honey Lemon ChickenHello 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.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour, garlic powder and onion powder on a plate or bowl.
  3. Dredge chicken, shaking off excess. Reserve 1 tablespoon flour and put in small bowl with 2 tablespoons cold water. Set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. Add chicken broth to skillet and bring to a simmer. Scrape the pan to mix brown bits into the liquid.
  6. Add honey, lemon juice and soy sauce and mix. Add reserved flour and water slurry to skillet. Simmer until sauce thickens.
  7. Return chicken to skillet. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Turn chicken over and let simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. Garnish with fresh lemon slices and gravy from skillet.
