Lemon Garlic Chicken

Now, here's a meal that's actually healthy to boot, for those times when we've had too many dinners in a row smothered in gravy. It does happen eventually.

Here's what you'll need for lemon garlic chicken:

1/3 C chopped Italian parsley
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
1 Tbsp grated lemon peel
3 cloves garlic
3 Tbsp butter
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 C chicken broth
Salt and pepper

In a small bowl, stir together parsley, oregano, lemon peel, and garlic. Set aside. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat butter in saucepan over med-high heat and brown chicken, cooking on each side for about 3 min. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Take the pan off the heat, stir in half the herb mixture and the broth and return to heat. Bring to a boil, scraping the pan to get all the good stuff off the sides and bottom. Get the chicken back in the pan. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 8 min. Serve chicken with a little bit of the pan sauce and sprinkle the remaining herb mixture on top, and you're in business.
