Herb Chicken

Elizabeth F.

¼ cup chopped parsley
1 Tbsp. chopped oregano
1 Tbsp. finely shredded lemon peel*
1 Tbsp. finely chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)
3 Tbsp. butter
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
¼ cup chicken broth*

1. In small bowl stir together parsley, oregano, lemon peel, and garlic. Set aside. Rub chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper.

2. In 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat cook chicken in butter for 6 minutes or until browned, turning once. Transfer to plate. Remove skillet from heat; stir in half herb mixture. Return to heat. Add broth; bring to boiling, stirring to scrape up browned bits. Return chicken to skillet; reduce heat. Simmer covered, 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and cooked all the way through.

3. Serve with pan sauce if desired; sprinkle with remaining herb mixture. Serve with rice and steamed veggies of choice. Makes 4 servings

Marinated chicken with lemon, parsley, garlic and salt and pepper first. Also add another quarter cup of chicken broth to thicken and create more sauce. If needed substitute lemon juice for lemon peel, just double number of tbsp.
