2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
2 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sherry or chicken broth
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, combine the green onion, lemon juice, sherry, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, lemon-pepper and remaining butter. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Serve with chicken.
Test Kitchen Tips
Go for freshly squeezed lemon juice when preparing this summery sipper. Bottled lemon juice, which is from concentrate, won’t provide the same bright, fresh flavor.
Worcestershire sauce was originally considered a mistake. In 1835, an English lord commissioned two chemists to duplicate a sauce he had tried in India. The pungent batch was disappointing and wound up in their cellar. When the pair stumbled upon the aged concoction 2 years later, they were pleasantly surprised by its unique taste.
