Lemon Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Lemon Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Yum! Our taste panel loved this version of lemon chicken from Carrie Palmquist of Canova, South Dakota. There's a lot of flavor and it doesn't seem light at all.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper. Add chicken, one piece at a time; shake to coat.
  • 2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in butter for 5-6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. Add 1/3 cup broth to the pan, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Add mushrooms; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until tender.
  • 4. Combine the remaining flour and broth until smooth; stir into the mushroom mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in lemon juice. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.
