Lemon Thyme Chicken

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons Crisco® Olive Oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (obviously I omitted this, b/c of my husband!)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (I used dried)

  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Set aside 4-1/2 teaspoons for sauce. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture over both sides of chicken. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  • In the same pan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add thyme and reserved flour mixture; stir until blended. Gradually stir in the broth and lemon juice, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.

  • I was really pleased with how this turned out. It is very flavorful, healthy, and easy to make! I will definitely be adding this to my arsenal of weeknight meals! I hope you try it and enjoy it as well. :-)

    Happy Hump Day!!
