I love this kind of recipe. The kind when you don't really even need a recipe. You just need an idea and a basic understanding of simple cooking methods.
Lemons were on sale and it felt like a fun springtime purchase so I bought them. I bought a whole bag of them without knowing what I would do with them. They sat on my counter for a few days and then I had an idea, Lemon Chicken! I had chicken and green beans in the freezer. So this easy peasy lemon chicken skillet was born.
So easy and delicious! All you do is saute chicken in one skillet and beans in another and then marry the two together to serve. Delish!
2 to 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half to make large, thin pieces
2 lemons, one for juice and zest, one for garnish
Fresh ground salt and pepper
1 bag of whole frozen green beans
Serves 4-6 (Depending on how much chicken you use)
1. In a large skillet, heat a little olive oil (a couple of Tablespoons) over medium to medium high heat.
2. Saute chicken until both sides are golden brown and chicken is cooked through. While cooking, juice and zest a lemon over the chicken. Salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with a little garlic powder. Continue to saute until done.
3. Meanwhile, in another skillet, heat a little olive oil and saute green beans until heated through and desired tenderness is reached. Salt and pepper to taste and add a little garlic powder while cooking.
Add a pat of butter if you like.
4. To serve place chicken over beans and garnish with lemon slices.
