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!
