This easy lemon-garlic chicken recipe calls for cutlets, which cook in less than 10 minutes! Can't find them? Make your own from chicken breasts. Place each breast on a cutting board and, with your knife parallel to the board, slice into the skinny side of the chicken breast in a single smooth motion. The side of green beans is cooked right in the same pan as the chicken, so this 20-minute easy, healthy dinner is not just a snap to prepare--the cleanup is a cinch too.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and green beans to the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, lemon zest and thyme; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth, wine and lemon juice and return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is reduced by half, about 1 minute more.

  • Serve topped with pine nuts, more thyme and lemon wedges, if desired.


Tip: Pine nuts add buttery texture and a little crunch to this simple chicken dish. Got extra? Toss them onto soups or salads or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 month or freeze for up to 6 months.

This was quick and easy to make. Perfect for the fall. We did not like the pine nuts in it. Next time I will add some cut up red potatoes. I used 1/2 a cup of chicken broth and no wine. We both enjoyed the rest of it. Read More
