Ready In:




  • Blanch broccoli spears in boiling water (or the microwave) for a few minutes; drain.
  • Sprinkle each side of chicken breasts with lemon juice and pepper. Coat each chicken breast with flour.
  • In large skillet, melt butter. Add chicken; saute 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is tender. Set aside.

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In 12x8 inch (2 quart) baking dish, arrange broccoli spears. Place chicken breasts over broccoli, overlapping if necessary. Pour sauce over chicken and broccoli; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

    If I could, I would rate this recipe 10 stars. This is soooooooooo good! I scaled this recipe down to two chicken breasts, other than that, I made it as written. The chicken was so juicy and delicious. This dish tastes like something you would get an upscale restaurant. I love recipes that are so easy to throw together and yet tastes like you spent all day making it. I will be making this recipe often in the future. Thanks for another great recipe, loof. This one is going straight to the keeper file. Made for October 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.

    This was yummy! Since I was cooking just for myself, I made this in an individual gratin dish that worked really well. I didn't notice until after I had added pepper, that it was supposed to be white pepper instead. Simple and delicious dish. Thanks loof for a nice meal. Made for ZWT8 Spain/Portugal.
