The Dish has a recipe just for you. Today we are featuring a recipe for Honey Lemon Chicken. This is a classic meal for any occasion.
Let’s start with the ingredients. For this dish we will need:
1 lb chicken breast (2 pieces)
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons water to serve (optional)
Finely chopped parsley
Now that we have our ingredients, we will slice each chicken breast horizontally in order to form 4 steaks in total. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper (generous amounts). Next, we will place the flour in a shallow dish. Coat the chicken in the flour and shake off the excess. Then we will mix 1 teaspoon of the flour that we previously put in the dish with the water. Set that aside once it is done.
Place the butter and oil into a skillet over medium to high heat until the butter is melted and hot. Add in the chicken and cook it until it is golden brown (approximately 2 minutes). Turn the chicken over and cook the other side until it is also golden brown, and then transfer the chicken onto a plate.
We will then add garlic into the skillet and stir until it is golden. Add in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Now, use a spatula to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan into the liquid. Add the honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and flour/water mixture into the skillet. Then we will mix and bring the ingredients to a simmer until it has thickened into a syrup (approximately 2-3 minutes).
Use a spatula to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan into the liquid. 3 Add honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and flour/water mixture (from step 4) into the skillet. Mix and bring to simmer. Add in salt and pepper according to your preference. Now that everything is ready to serve, we will pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish it with parsley and lemon slices. Now we have a homemade meal for the whole family!
