DIRECTIONS

  • Season chicken breasts generously with garlic powder, parsley, pepper, and if desired (for a more lemon taste) lemon pepper. Sprinkle a light amount of salt of the chicken.
  • Heat up a skillet on high heat, and add butter and olive oil. Once hot (a sprinkle of water will "sizzle" in the oil), add seasoned chicken breasts.
  • Sear chicken on both sides until lightly browned, then remove the chicken from the skillet to a plate (keep burner on high the entire time).
  • Add lemon juice to the hot skillet and swirl it around to loosen all the chicken juices and flavor from the pan, but DO NOT DISCARD.
  • Add water quickly after lemon juice has picked up the spices. Add bouillon cubes and bring to a boil.
  • Stir in corn starch that has been dissolved in 1/2 Celsius cold water.
  • Wait for a reboil, and then add the chicken breasts back into the gravy mixture.
  • Wait for another reboil and then cover the skillet, and turn the heat to low.
  • Let chicken simmer for 15-20 minutes (I usually start rice in the rice maker at this point because our rice only takes about 15-20 minutes to cook, but you'll have to adjust based on your needs and equipment).
  • Serve chicken over rice.
