Dill & Lemon Chicken


Ingredients

serve 1

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoons flour
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preparation

  1. Season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear until well browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth, flour, 1/2 tablespoon dill and lemon juice in a measuring cup and add to pan. Cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a warmed platter. Season sauce with salt and pepper and spoon over the chicken. Garnish with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill.
