My friend's mom used to make this for us in college - it's not a fancy meal, but it's delicious and definite comfort food!

Such a simple receptive for such a great return. I even substituted black pepper for lemon pepper. I will definitely keep this receptive around for a quick and fun meal. I served it with a side of blanched asparagus.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop chicken into bite-size pieces. Cook in a nonstick pan over medium high heat until cooked through, but still moist - about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Add butter, allow to melt.
  4. Add lemon pepper - I really coat the chicken with this, but if you like a milder flavor you can cut back on it. Stir to combine.
  5. Add paprika and lemon juice.
  6. Sauce will thicken after a few minutes of simmering. Serve over hot basmati rice.
  7. Note: depending on the size of your chicken breasts, you might want to adjust the sauce. This recipe makes a nice amount of sauce to coat the chicken, if using medium sized (~6oz) breasts. I never actually measure the ingredients for this, I just do it by taste. You could also substitute a 1/2 cup chicken stock for the butter to reduce the fat in this.
