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! "

Just so-so

I followed the directions exactly, but we all agreed it did not have much flavor which seemed odd given the ingredients. If I make it again I will need to add some things to give it pep. Maybe garlic salt, a sliver of butter, more lemon...something.

Simple enough to make
A definite make-again meal!

This meal was incredible! Quick and easy, and full of flavor. The sauce is delicious and simple to prepare. The next time we make this, we will cover the chicken at the "simmer" stage. Without a lid, the chicken only reached 160 F after 35 minutes. Once we covered it, it only took 6 minutes to reach 180 F. We served this with asparagus steamed with fresh lemon slices and Italian seasoning, a dinner salad with Italian dressing and a baguette slice. Dee-lish!

Relatively easy, lots of flavor
Great name for a great recipe

great chicken dinner--something different and very tasty. easy to make, quick and it was enjoyed by all. we eat a lot of chicken and am always looking for something different and this is great. give it a try

Easy to make, tasty
Try Oregano instead of Dill!

I prefer oregano to dill for taste. Also added lemon zest, but my kids don't like lemon, so split into 2 pans! I find sauting the garlic and onions to a more brown/camelized color enhances the flavor of the dish.

Substitue Oregano for Dill!

I used fresh oregano instead of dill. My kids prefer much less lemon, so I usually do 2 pans - one with and one without lemon; I also like the added lemon zest.
I prefer to saute garlic and onions until carmel/darker brown color; enhances the flavor of the whole dish!

easy, healthy, and delicious!
