  • Bring liquid in skillet to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Add butter, parsley, and lemon juice; stir until butter has softened and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with sauce and, if desired, rice.

I love this recipe. I tried tweeking it but have come to prefer this original recipe. Only thing is I don't cover it while cooking as chicken has plenty of its own juices. If need arises I just add a bit of broth or water (or wine)

I LOVE this chicken! It is so easy to make, and it is tender and delicious. I serve it over cauliflower rice as I do not eat grains, and the sauce soaks into everything. If you are looking for a comforting dish to make midweek, you cannot lose with this one!

Just made this for the first time using boneless, skinless thighs and it was amazing!! Very light & refreshing. I made some extra sauce to use over the rice and it was perfect! Additionally, I made the sautéed asparagus & peas as shown in the photo and the suggestion to squeeze fresh lemon juice over that before serving made the most delicious and cohesive dish imaginable. I have two picky eaters (2 & 5 year old boys) and this was a hit with everyone.

Easy and delicious! Served it with sides of quinoa and cole slaw. The fresh parsley really added to the flavor and made the dish pretty too.

This is delicious and pretty easy and fool-proof. Tastes like you spent a lot more time on it than you really did :) Perfect with the rice and with the lemon slices it looks great on a plate for a special occasion. I've made it several times, definitely a keeper.

I tried this recipe last night and my husband and I loved it!! I substituted chicken broth for the white wine (only because I didn't have wine in the house) and it came out wonderfully! I will definately make this again!
