Lemon lovers, come on in! This is a fantastic, easy lemon chicken from Scoozi Restaurant in Chicago. Garlic, shallots and white wine accent this chicken; nice because there's not a lot to detract from the pure lemony taste. I find that there's not a ton of the sauce; if you wish to have extra to drizzle on veggies or whatever, I'd probably double the sauce ingredients. It's good with pasta or roasted potatoes and a nice green veggie.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the lemon zest with the melted butter and set aside.
  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper then dip in flour and pat off excess.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet, add olive oil and saute chicken breasts smooth side down until lightly brown.
  4. Turn chicken over and lightly brown the other side.
  5. Add garlic and shallots and allow to lightly brown.
  6. Add white wine and allow to reduce.
  7. Add chicken broth and bring to a full boil, then add juice of 1 lemon, parsley, and butter mixed with lemon zest and swirl in the pan to create the"sauce".
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning, and serve chicken breasts with sauce.

This was quick and easy and great tasting! I will definitely make it again. The only change I made was to pound the chicken to about 1/4 thickness prior to dusting with flour. I also cooked the chicken about 3/4 of the way done and then placed it in my oven at 175 degrees (on convection) and finished the cooking while preparing the sauce. I served this with a salad and gnocchi in Alfredo Sauce . The alfredo and limone sauce blended very well together.
