Lemon Chicken with Broccoli
1 tablespoon oil of choice - olive or coconut
Sea Salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup chicken broth
1 lemon, quartered and juiced (about ¼ cup fresh juice)
4 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon minced)
300 g fresh or frozen broccoli florets
Optional: 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
- Heat your oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle sea salt, pepper and Italian seasoning on each side of the chicken.
- Once your skillet is hot, add your chicken breasts. Brown for about 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
- Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, minced garlic to the skillet. Stir and scrape up any brown bits that are stuck on the bottom.
- Add your chicken back to the skillet, along with the used lemon quarters. Simmer the chicken in the sauce for about 5 minutes, turning halfway through. Add your broccoli to the skillet and cook until broccoli is bright green and tender and chicken is cooked through, about 5 additional minutes. Finally, stir in the butter or ghee and add additional sea salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy
