This is so easy and so tasty! Very light. I usually serve this with my Lemon Spaghetti Lemon Spaghetti and steamed broccoli on the side. The kids always gobble it up and want more! Yum!


  1. In a nonstick skillet lightly sprayed with Pam, slowly saute garlic over low heat.
  2. Clean and trim chicken breasts, and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Add chicken to skillet and cook over medium heat, about 10-12 minutes, or until brown on both sides.
  4. Add chicken broth and lemon juice. Heat to a boiling and then reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is done and juices run clear.
  5. Remove chicken and keep warm.
  6. Continue cooking remaining liquid in pan for approximately 3 minutes.
  7. Poor liquid over chicken and serve over cooked vermicelli.

This was great! Very easy to make. I had VERY large breasts and had to pound them out. I only used 3 and should have used more. I didn't think it would go over as well as it did. I used a whole can of chicken broth because I didn't want to waste is. I just simmered down the broth and added a teaspoon of flour to thicken also added 2 whole cloves of garlic to simmer down with the sauce. Yum-O! Served with Brown Rice, Corn on the Cobb and Peaches and Blueberries in Lime Juice.

I guess using my cast iron skillet wasn't a good idea on this one...the garlic burned super quick, so I was forced to nix the sauce all together and throw the chicken in the oven to finish after a quick browning on both sides.. :/
