    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 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. 2
      Reduce heat to low.
    3. 3
      Add butter, allow to melt.
    4. 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. 5
      Add paprika and lemon juice.
    6. 6
      Sauce will thicken after a few minutes of simmering. Serve over hot basmati rice.
    7. 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.

      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.

      This was quick and easy! I found I could use 1 chicken breast to feed two with this recipe. I halved the recipe, but still found the lemon flavor a bit strong. I think this would be awesome if you reduced the amount of lemon pepper seasoning as the chef suggested. I also think this would be nice in a wrap with spinach and rice! Thanks for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2009.
