Sautéed Lemon and Garlic Chicken - Inspired by a Spanish tapas recipe, this sautéed lemon garlic chicken is quick, easy and very tasty.
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:12 minutes
3 large skinless boneless chicken breasts
3 garlic cloves minced
¼ cup olive oil
Rind or zest of 2 lemons
Lemon juice of two lemons
A handful of chopped fresh parsley
Cut the chicken in very thin slices crosswise (width wise)
In a pan, large enough to fit the chicken heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic for about 30 seconds.
Add the chicken and sauté for about 10 minutes until it starts to brown on the edges.
Add the lemon juice and half of the lemon zest, and bring to a boil, while deglazing the pan with a wooden spatula, scraping all the pieces stuck on the pan.
Remove from heat, add the parsley and blend.
Sprinkle with the rest of the zest, salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges
