Butter, Lemon, herb chicken breast

Tara McCarter


I am a newlywed and was inspired by a recipe I found on pinterest. This is only different by the fresh herbs, butter and I just used juice and not wine and the length of time and the temp of the recipe. I really like how this came out and my test taster, aka husband loved it and ate a lot.

How to Make Butter, Lemon, herb chicken breast


  1. Pre heat oven to 250.
    Mix flour, salt, 2 tsp lemon pepper, set aside.
  2. Squeeze 3 lemons for the juice, set aside, chop fresh rosemary then add to the lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. Add oil to 5 quart skillet. Drench 2 flattened chicken breast in flour mixture. Sprinkle extra lemon pepper to the breast. Place in a heated skillet. Do not over crowd the pan. No more then 3 breast at a time. Cook 3 minutes on each side. Until all breast cooked. Transfer breast once cooked to large baking sheet, do over crowd the baking sheet also. Place in 250 oven to keep slow cooking.
  4. Add rest of butter to skillet to deglaze the pan making sure to stir chicken goodness around the butter. Add lemon juice with rosemary cook till creamy. About less then 5 to 10 minutes. Add sliced lemons, take chicken out of oven place all into the lemon butter goodness. Cook covered for about 10 to minutes. Until the chicken is fully cooked and stir as you go so the chicken keeps getting the butter, herb, lemon sauce.
  5. I turned off the stove with the lid still on the skillet so it can rest in the sauce. I added green beans and garlic herbed buttered noodles that my husband also loves.
