Steps to make Lemon and Dill Chicken


Season chicken


Generously season 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts with salt and pepper all over.


Sear chicken


In a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1½ teaspoons of oil and add the seasoned chicken breasts. Cook for about 3 minutes per side until sear and well browned. Set aside on a plate and cover with aluminum foil.


Cook onion and garlic


Return the skillet to the heat and reduce to medium. Heat 1½ teaspoons of oil and add ¼ cup of finely chopped onion and 3 cloves of minced garlic. Cook, while tossing, for about 1 minute until fragrant.


Combine sauce


In a measuring cup, whisk 1 cup of chicken broth, 2 teaspoons of flour, 1 tablespoon of dill and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.


Cook sauce


Pour the sauce into the skillet and cook, while whisking, for about 3 minutes until slightly thicker.


Add chicken


Reduce the heat to low and return the seared chicken, along with any juices, to the skillet. Simmer for about 4 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer chicken to a serving plate.


Season sauce


Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste and pour over the chicken.




Garnish with 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped dill for serving.

Too sour cause of the lemon in my opinion but my mother is Hispanic so she was all over this dish therefore i'm still grateful.

Needed to cook it longer than stated cause it came out a bit undercooked, but once I got the hang of timing it all was perfect.
