Lemon & Dill Chicken Recipe 

Lemon & Dill Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breast

Salt & pepper to taste

3 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided

¼ cup finely chopped onion

3 cloves garlic, minced (I used chopped garlic in a jar)

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 tsp. flour

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill, divided (I used chopped dill from the spice rack)

1 Tbsp. lemon juice (I used RealLemon from concentrate)

Season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper.  Heat 1 ½ 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 ½ teaspoons oil to the pan.  Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes.  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 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.
