How To Make Lemon Butter Chicken
First, prep the chicken. I have used chicken breasts in this recipe. Pound the chicken to make thin slices so they’ll cook quickly and evenly. The seasoning for chicken is super simple. Just sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides before searing in the pan until golden brown.
Make the lemon butter sauce. Fry garlic and lemon zest in butter and olive oil. When fragrant, add chicken stock (broth), cream and lemon juice. Simmer this sauce to create luscious base for creamy lemon butter chicken.
Stir in spinach and parsley. Even though baby spinach is the most convenient addition, English spinach also works perfectly in this recipe. Cook until spinach is wilted. When the sauce starts to thicken, add chicken and transfer this to oven to finish the cooking process.
Now, all you need is a delicious side to go with this comforting meal. Choose your favorite from mashed potatoes, pasta, boiled rice, roast, noodles or garlic bread.
