  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Lemon slices and chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt, and pepper.
  3. Coat each chicken breast in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  6. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  7. Pour in the chicken broth and lemon juice, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  9. Remove the skillet from the oven and stir in the butter until melted and fully incorporated.
  10. Serve the chicken with lemon slices and fresh parsley, if desired.


  • For a low-carb version, skip the flour coating and just season the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking.
  • Add some sliced vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini or asparagus to the skillet for a complete meal.
  • You can also use bone-in chicken thighs instead of breasts for a more flavorful dish.
