Lemon Chicken Recipe
This Lemon Chicken recipe features tender, juicy chicken breasts simmered in a tangy lemon sauce. Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or an elegant meal.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon thyme leaves (optional)
1 tablespoon butter
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
Prepare Chicken: Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour, shaking off excess.
Cook Chicken: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
Make Sauce: In the same skillet, add chicken broth, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and thyme (if using). Bring to a simmer, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
Simmer Chicken: Return chicken to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.
Finish Sauce: Stir in butter until melted and sauce is smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve: Garnish with chopped parsley and serve over rice, pasta, or with vegetables.
