How to Make Chicken Breasts with Lemon
1Season flour with salt and pepper, and dredge the chicken all over.
3Heat the oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the chicken pieces in one layer.
4Add chicken and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
5Turn the chicken and cook for 5 more minutes, or until cooked through.
6Carefully remove the oil from the skillet, leaving the chicken.
8Add the thyme, shallots and garlic, and cook for about a minute.
10Add the lemon rind, the lemon juice and the broth.
11Scrape the skillet to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom.
12Add the butter, and cook for 3 minutes longer.
