This is a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens. It's a quick dinner (ready in less than half an hour) that's great for summertime barbecues. It's a speedy version of the classic dish that doesn't require hours of marinating time, and it's still just as delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet cook chicken and garlic in hot butter over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until no pink remains in chicken, turning chicken once and stirring garlic occasionally.

This couldn't be easier or more flavorful. I loved the strong citrus flavor.

I'm giving this 5 stars for the spicy tart flavor...not for presentation...I would have liked to see the chicken brown lots more...with that said both hubby and I enjoyed the heat and the tartness this dish gave us...it was something unusual and greatly appreciated...thanks for posting the recipe...=)
