❤️Happy Valentine’s Day!❤️
Here’s your NO-stress No-GUILT Weeknight (HEALTHY) Date Night Meal Plan
Lemon Chicken Skillet Recipe
-1 tablespoon oil of choice – olive, avocado, coconut, etc.
-Sea Salt and pepper, to taste
-1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-1 cup chicken broth
-1 lemon, quartered and juiced (about ¼ cup fresh juice)
-4 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon minced)
-10 ounces fresh or frozen broccoli florets
-optional: 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
-Heat your oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle sea salt, pepper and Italian seasoning on each side of the chicken.
-Once your skillet is hot, add your chicken breasts. Brown for about 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
-Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, minced garlic to the skillet. Stir and scrape up any brown bits that are stuck on the bottom.
-Add your chicken back to the skillet, along with the used lemon quarters. Simmer the chicken in the sauce for about 5 minutes, turning halfway through. Add your broccoli to the skillet and cook until broccoli is bright green and tender and chicken is cooked through, about 5 additional minutes. Finally, stir in the butter or ghee and add additional sea salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
Ideas for you:
-Try it topped with a sprinkle of Parmesan or Romano cheese!
-Add a sprinkle of chopped fresh basil at the end.
-Substitute mushrooms for broccoli (or use both!)
