3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided
¼ cup finely chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons flour
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat 1½ teaspoons 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.
Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1½ teaspoons oil to the pan. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth, flour, 1 tablespoon dill and lemon juice in a measuring cup and add to pan. Cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
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 tablespoon chopped fresh dill.

Instead of fresh dill i used 1 Tbsp of dill weed and twice the amount of garlic. I have a house of picky eaters anf not one complaint! I served this with garlic seasonef buttered corn and olive oil garlic pasta.

This dish was easy, quick and tasty. The recipe was easy to follow, I did do more with the lemon and I added one other ingredient such as: fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh cut lemon and a little rosemary. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thank you! :)

Very simple and quick to make. I did use more garlic than the recipe called for, and it was delicious. The sauce thickened nicely and was just enough to add flavor to the chicken. I will definitely make this again.

I really did enjoy this recipe but it just needed a bit more salt. I just added it after the fact. It has a nice fresh and light flavor. The dill and lemon are a winning combination.

I made this a couple of weeks ago for my wife and now request it once a week. Its easy to make and inexpensive. I also serve with asparagus except I cook mine in a frying pan on low heat with olive oil and salt and pepper. This is a great meal, easy to prepare and done in no time

Made this meal for my friends last night...It was absolutely delicious.!!!
Anyone thinking of trying this recipe I would recommend marinating the chicken with garlic,zest and juice of 1 lemon dill and salt and pepper.
I left it to marinade for a few hours than I cooked the chicken in a little oil and followed the recipe as stated I used the marinade juices and cooked that in the sauce with the chicken.
I served my dish with roast potatoes..rice and pan fried the asparagus with mangetout in a little oil which I seasoned with salt and pepper.
