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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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 and Delicious

Easy, relatively healthy, and tastes like spring. We took a cue from the photo and served with asparagus, which went really well (especially with a bit of the sauce drizzled over). A great way to prepare chicken quickly, and I have a feeling the leftovers will make great sandwiches.

Awesome dish

I had a ton of fresh dill left over from when I made my sour cream and dill potatoes and didn't want it to go bad. This was a recipe I came across just googling dill+chicken and it seemed good. Like most times when I cook, I barely ever follow directions for how much to add so as far as the onion, garlic, lemon, and dill I added the amount I wanted and this dish came out awesome! It tastes so rich but fresh at the same time. This was my first time ever using this website as well and I think I might be coming back often now.

fast, fresh, healthy

Excellant Weeknight Dinner

I did follow other users' suggestions and doubled the lemon juice. I also used dried dill, so 2 teaspoons, rather than the 2 tablespoons of fresh, just because I didn't have any fresh. I also used a little white wine after the garlic and onion and softened and before I added the broth-dill-lemon-flour mixture. We thought it was great. Is definitely going into the regular rotation.

Flavorful and fast

Zesty Lemony Flavor

Add lemon zest and increase fresh lemon juice to 2TBSP. Use corn starch instead of flour and I used fresh dry dill but could see an advantage to using fresh. Fine dice definitely on the onion. We will have this again and again for a simple easy meal! Try it!!

Accompanied with chicken stock/parsley couscous and cranberry orange relish

a nice easy chicken dish

Nice chicken dish, only took about a half hour to make. Next time I'd put more dill & less garlic though. I love dill & the dill flavor kind of got lost in this recipe.

easy to make, already had most ingredients in the house for it

One other thing to add to my review- some mushrooms would be really good in the sauce too!
