Lemon-thyme chicken with a taste of Dijon mustard makes for a fantastic, lightly flavored chicken dish. Pairs great with white or yellow rice.

  • Combine flour and salt on a small dish. Coat chicken with flour on both sides.

  • Heat butter and remaining olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Cook chicken until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low and pour broth mixture and lemon slices over chicken. Cover and simmer until no longer pink in the centers, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and serve with lemon slices on top, spooning the broth over the chicken.

A nice chicken dish. I cut the chicken breasts in half and pounded them a bit as they were large. The only changes i made were to use gluten free flour and lactose free butter. I also added some chopped rosemary, to me chicken and rosemary go together. Will make this again. Thank you for the recipe. June 14/2020 Read More
