Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side.
  2. Pour broth over chicken and cover skillet; lower heat to low and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a plate, reserving broth mixture in the skillet.
  3. Pour lemon juice into broth mixture and simmer until liquid is reduced by 1/3, 2 to 3 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

This turned out yummy with minimal ingredients. Most of which I didn't have so I used unicorn flames and fairy dust jk, I didn't have lemons so I used bottled lemon, and garlic powder on the raw...

Really tasty and easy. I added the lemon zest when I added the stock. It melted into the sauce and added a pop of lemon.
