|Lemon Chicken with Broccoli|
I will probably make this again, but I will add the butter and increase the amount of lemon juice.
Lemon Chicken with Broccoli
|2 Tbsp all-purpose flour|
|1/2 tsp table salt, divided|
|1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground|
|12 oz uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s), thinly sliced|
|2 tsp olive oil|
|1 1/2 cup(s) fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth, divided|
|2 tsp minced garlic|
|2 1/2 cup(s) uncooked broccoli, small florets|
|2 tsp lemon zest, or more to taste|
|2 Tbsp fresh parsley, fresh, chopped|
|1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice|
On a plate, combine 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper; add chicken and turn to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning as needed, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes; remove to a plate. Put 1 cup of broth and garlic in same skillet; bring to a boil over high heat, scrapping up browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Add broccoli; cover and cook 1 minute. In a small cup, stir together remaining 1/2 cup of broth, 1/2 tablespoon of flour and 1/4 teaspoon of salt; add to skillet and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender and sauce is slightly thickened, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in chicken and lemon zest; heat through. Remove skillet from heat and stir in parsley and lemon juice; toss to coat. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
