Looking for an easy, savory, and healthy chicken recipe? This delicious Lemon Chicken checks all those boxes. It’s the perfect weeknight recipe. Deglazing the skillet with chicken broth, butter, and garlic make this sauce rich and flavorful. Lemon Chicken is just what you’re looking for when it comes to comfort food this time of the year. At the same time, the capers and lemon give a zesty and fresh nod to Spring which is just around the corner.
Delicious Lemon Chicken Recipe:
Lemon Chicken can be ready in about thirty minutes from start to finish. It’s perfect for busy nights yet the flavors are so complex and delicious that it can make a weekend meal special too. The golden encrusted chicken breasts and the sauce that is served with it are a match made in heaven. Lemon Chicken is sure to make the top of your “go-to” recipe list.
Chicken thighs can also be used in lieu of chicken breasts. Follow the recipe directions as written. However, the cooking time for the chicken will be different depending on the thickness of the thighs. Use an instant-read thermometer to ensure that the ideal internal temperature for chicken (165 degrees) is reached before serving.
How to serve Lemon Chicken:
There are many ways to serve Lemon Chicken. A few of my favorite ways to serve it is on top of a bed of angel hair pasta drizzled with some olive oil. It can also be served with a side of rice pilaf or over polenta. The sauce is so mouthwatering that it’s delicious with anything that soaks it up.
