Fresh lemon and dill create a quick Greek-inspired pan sauce for simple sautéed chicken breasts. Make it a meal: Serve with roasted broccoli and whole-wheat orzo.

"Very easy and quick. I usually don't measure my ingredients (unless baking) so I'm thinking I was a little shy on the dill. I will add more next time because I would like more dill flavor in the dish. Definitely a keeper! "

Quick, Easy, Delicious

I was looking for a quick lemon chicken recipe and this was a home run. I didn't have chicken broth, so I used salted water instead. It was still great. My chicken breasts were big, so I cooked them for much longer. The sauce is fantastic with some wild rice too. Excellent.

Fast, flavorful

This recipe is excellent. I also doubled all but the broth, oil and chicken. This will be a regular in our rotation!


I absolutely loved this dish, however, I did make some modifications after reading the previous reviews. The simplest way to explain what I did I to say that I doubled everything except the amount of chicken, chicken broth, and oil. Also I do not measure anything, but I have a very good eye.

very fresh tasting
Definitely a good Recipe

The chicken was a bit bland. I would definitely add more lemon.

easy, juicy

If it was bland, why did you

If it was bland, why did you add PLAIN yogurt and more flour? That doesn't make any sense to me.
