Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup flour for dredging

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 4

    skinless boneless chicken breasts, about 6 ounces each

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 4

    sprigs fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried

  • 2

    tablespoons finely chopped shallots

  • 2

    teaspoons finely chopped garlic

  • 2

    teaspoons grated lemon rind

  • 3

    tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/2

    cup chicken broth, fresh or canned

  • 2

    tablespoons butte

Directions

Season flour with salt and pepper, and dredge the chicken all over. Remove the excess flour. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the chicken pieces in one layer. Add chicken and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip the chicken and cook for 5 minutes more, or until cooked through. Carefully remove the oil from the skillet, leaving the chicken. Discard the oil. Add the thyme, shallots and garlic, and cook for about a minute. Do not burn the garlic. Add the lemon rind, the lemon juice and the broth. Scrape the skillet to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom. Add the butter, and cook for 3 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
