I like to make this chicken when I'm having a bad day because I get to beat the tar out of it! :) It's good served with steamed broccoli and sauteed squash.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-inch thickness.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon each oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet to high. Cook chicken 4 minutes per side or until done (internal temp 170°F). Remove chicken to serving platter; keep warm.
  4. Add green onions, lemon juice, parsley and mustard to skillet; cook and stir 15 seconds.
  5. Add chicken broth and stir until smooth.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter.
  7. To serve,I like to coat my chicken in the sauce or you can ladle some over each breast.

Quick and delicious, though instead of pounding out the breasts I sliced them in half and proceeded as per recipe. The lemon I had was very juicy and half yielded nearly a 1/3 of a cup, will cut this back to a 1/4 of a cup. Enjoyed by all, thank you mydesigirl, made as a pressie for the 12 days of Christmas Recipe Swap.

This was so quick to make and very yummy, while the chicken was cooking, I prepared the other ingredients, so it took me about 20 minutes to be on the table. I had to substitute the green onions with brown onions (because I ran out of green onions) but otherwise I kept to the recipe. I served the chicken on a bed of mash potatoes and poured the fabulous sauce on the juicy chicken, it made a yummy dinner. Thank you mydesigirl

Delicious! I love bright lemon flavors! We made this for our Valentine's dinner, served with roasted potatoes and green salad.
