Garlic and Lemon Chicken in White Wine Broth

Tired of eating out? Ever wished that you could cook up a meal for a party of 2 quickly after a long day at work? This might just be the dish for you.

Chicken breasts, one of the easiest protein to work with. Its lean, its filling and cooked the right way, it's actually very very tasty.

Joanna and I just love garlic in our dishes. Soon, you will realized that most of our dishes have garlic in them.

This dish is a simple and wholesome meal that is quick to whip up and delicious. It is a dish that have most of our favourite ingredients all on one plate. The gravy is there not only to infuse into the chicken breasts, making them tender and juicy, but it is so flavourful on its own, you could finish a whole loaf of bread with it.

Here's the recipe below.

2 - 3 Chicken Breasts
8 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 Lemon Sliced
1/2 Lemon Squeezed
2 Jalapenos Sliced
2 Cups of Chicken Stock
1 Cup of White Wine
Salt and Pepper to season
Olive Oil

From start to finish

First, season your chicken breast with salt and pepper, together with a bit of olive oil. Leave it to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.

Clean and crush the cloves of garlic on the chopping board with the palm of your hands. This will allow the flavours from the garlic to be released intensively into the dish.

On a heated pan, drop 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Once the oil is hot, put in the pressed garlic cloves. Once the garlic start to brown, add in the sliced jalapeƱo.

Soon after, add in your chicken breast (smooth side/skin-side down). Sheer the chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes or until they have a nice golden brown sheer.

Flip the chicken breasts over and pour into the pan, 2 cups of chicken stock and wait for the stock to come to a boil.

Once the stock is bubbling in the pan, reduce the heat to the pan and pour in the squeezed lemon juice. and add in the lemon slices. Leave the pan on the heat for another 2 minutes before adding in the white wine.

After adding in the white wine, leave the pan on the heat for another 30 seconds before serving

For a complete meal, serve the chicken with a side salad, and if you like your food spicy like us, be sure to have some Tabasco Sauce standing by.
