EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
Grilled, with almonds, in a salad, or fried, chicken breast can be prepared in many ways to satisfy everyone’s taste!
CHICKEN WITH LEMON SAUCE
In this recipe we turn to those who love the citrus taste: chicken with lemon sauce.
Tender strips of chicken breast (but you can also use sliced, diced or thighs and wings for this easy recipe), dipped in a thick and enveloping cream that will make this second dish truly irresistible and fragrant. You can decide to flavor it with parsley, rosemary or sage …
Ingredients for 4 people: 600 g chicken – a bit of flour – extra virgin olive oil.
For the sauce: juice and zest of 1 lemon – 100 g white wine (or apple vinegar) – 180 g water – 20 g powder cornstarch – 10 g of sugar – salt
Let’s first take care of the cleaning of the chicken breast: divide the breast in half, eliminate the fatter parts and cut it into strips.
Now pass the chicken strips in the flour and remove the excess flour.
Place a pan on the fire, pour olive oil and heat it; when it’s hot, lay the chicken strips and let them brown over medium heat, turning them from time to time, (the same procedure applies if you want to use chicken that is sliced, diced or pieces like the thighs).
When they are browned, remove them from the heat and keep them aside.
Meanwhile prepare the sauce: put cornstarch in a bowl, add 30 g of water taken from the total dose and mix to dissolve it.
In a pan pour the wine (or apple cider vinegar), the remaining 150 g of water, the lemon juice, the sugar and the grated lemon zest. Heat over low heat mixing with a whisk and pour the cornstarch previously dissolved in the water.
Immediately add also the browned chicken, salt, shake the casserole to mix the chicken with the cream and cook for a couple of minutes, the time needed to thicken the sauce.
Once ready, serve immediately with salad or basmati rice.
Enjoy your meal!
