Lemon & Dill Chicken


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (1-1 1/4 pounds)

Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 teaspoons flour

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided

1 tablespoon lemon juice


Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the chicken and sear until well browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil.

Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Whisk broth, flour, 1 tablespoon dill and lemon juice in a measuring cup and add to pan. Cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a warmed platter.

Season sauce with salt and pepper and spoon over the chicken.

Garnish with the remaining 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill.
