Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb. broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • 3 tbsp. Lemon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Four 6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 lemon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F.  Toss broccoli and garlic with 1 Tbsp lemon oil and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper and roast on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, tenderize chicken breasts to even thickness and season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper, then coat with flour. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a skillet on medium-high and cook chicken until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Position chicken amidst broccoli and roast until chicken is cooked through and broccoli tender (about 6 minutes).
  3. Return skillet to medium heat and add remaining oil and lemon pieces. Cook while stirring frequently, until beginning to brown (about 3 minutes). Add lemon juice and 1/3 cup water and cook, stirring and scraping up any browned bits. Spoon over chicken and serve with broccoli.
