Lemony Garlic Chicken

Posted on: May 3, 2014

I love lemon, and I love garlic and I am always earing chicken so why not lemony garlic chicken? Sounded simple enough to me! I started with a couple of boneless chicken breasts, got out some garlic, got crushing, next thing you know I am squeezing lemons! Can you say yummy? Here’s what I did!


  • 2-4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3-4 crushed garlic cloves or more
  • 1 large lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 cups chicken broth or wine or half of each
  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small onion sliced thinly


  1. In your large sautee pan, heat the oil and sautee the onion and garlic. Add in the breast and sear. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side depending on the thickness, just till there’s no more pinkness to the meat.
  2. Add the zest, juice and broth. Stir and scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan, that is all good!!
  3. If you’re looking for a gravy consistency, you can thicken with a roux or corn starch depending on your tastes. let the sauce bubble and cook up and season with salt and pepper and maybe thyme if you like.
  4. Serve with a nice veggie, and maybe salad or rice!
  5. Enjoy!
