Dinner was out of this world and it was simple to make! It’s been nearly two weeks since we began the Mediterranean style of eating. This was the first new recipe I created and it is definitely a keeper! I used my Greek Style Seasoning, dredged the chicken in flour, and made up this delicious lemon sauce. I’ll be making it again soon. The recipe calls for chicken breasts, but Bob prefers thighs, so I did some of them also.
INGREDIENTS: (4 Servings)
2 whole skinless, chicken breasts, butterflied and then cut in half
Homemade Greek seasoning (recipe below)
1/3 cup AP flour, divided
4 TBSP butter, divided
½ an onion sliced
¼ cup Marsala wine
2 cups chicken broth
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 TBSP garlic, minced or chopped
OPTIONAL: Parsley, basil or finely chopped spinach for garnish
Season both sides of chicken with Greek seasoning. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
In a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle 2 – 3 TBSP olive oil in bottom of pan. Add 2 TBSP butter. When hot, add floured chicken and onion slices. Cook until lightly browned. Flip and cook the other side. Remove to a platter.
Deglaze the pan with ¼ cup Marsala wine, scraping up any browned bits which will add a lot of additional flavor. Add chicken broth, lemon juice, garlic, and approximately 2 TBSP AP flour. Cook until slightly thickened. Add remaining 2 TBSP butter.
Return chicken to pan and let simmer for about five minutes, flipping over once. Taste the sauce, and adjust if necessary.
Place chicken back on the serving platter and pour the sauce on top. Add any garnishes you choose.
GREEK SEASONING by Tika
I started using this seasoning years ago for when we grilled vegetables. Dummy me! I should have been using it on everything. Make some and put it in an empty seasoning jar. You’ll find that you will use it often!
6 TBSP garlic powder
1 TBSP sea salt
4 ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 ½ tsp basil
1 ½ tsp parsley
1 ½ tsp oregano
1 TBSP black pepper
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Add to an empty seasoning jar, label and use it on almost everything. (Fish, chicken, pork, lamb, vegetables).
