In the summer, I'm usually bust doing yard work, going to the beach, just having fun. So it's nice to have a meal that you can prepare and only use one pan!

How to Make Summer Chicken


  1. Peel a 1/2 inch strip around the center of each potato. Brown the potatoes and chicken in butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and lemon juice. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Add the peas, green onions, and parsley; cover and simmer an additional 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is done. Remove from the heat.
  3. Remove the chicken and vegetables to a serving platter, reserving the drippings in the skillet; set aside and keep warm.
  4. Add the sour cream, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the drippings; stir well. Allow to get warm but do not boil. Serve the chicken with the sauce.
