This week’s Last week’s Friend Friday topic was food, glorious food! Katy asked us to, share the recipe to your favorite seasonal dish… the one you love to make and love to eat this time of the year. Before I headed off for my long weekend away, I didn’t have time to post my recipe, so when I made it this evening I figured now would be as good a time as any to post it.
This really is a terribly easy and absolutely delicious meal to make. (Please note, it does seem to create an enormous amount of mess and washing up in a very small amount of time!! But then maybe that’s just me.)
Chicken with lemon butter sauce
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
50g plain flour
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 tablespoons chicken stock
20g flat leaf parsley
1. Place the chicken breasts on a chopping board and use a sharp knife to cut each one horizontally into two thin slices.
2. Put the flour onto a large plate, season with salt and pepper and mix. Coat each side of the chicken breasts with flour.
3. Heat the olive oil and half the butter in a large frying pan. Place the chicken in the pan and fry for 5 minutes on each side until it starts to brown and is cooked through (work in batches if necessary).
4. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and keep it warm while you make the sauce.
5. Pour the lemon juice and the stock into the frying pan, scraping all the brown bits from the edges and bottom into the liquid. Bring to the boil, stirring for about 1 minute.
6. Add the chopped parsley and remaining butter and give it all a good stir to create a creamy texture.
7. Place two slices of chicken in the middle of each serving plate and drizzle over the lemon sauce.
I like to serve the chicken with salad and caramelised onions.
What is your favourite thing to make and eat at this time of year?
