Description

Quick, easy and delicious.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cups Olive Oil Plus 3 Tablespoons
  • 3 Tablespoons Honey Plus More For Dipping/drizzling
  • 2 whole Large Lemons Juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Zest Plus 2 Teaspoons
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Cut Into Pieces
  • 1 cup All-purpose Or Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

Preparation

In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tablespoons honey, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, and a 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Whisk ingredients together, then add chicken pieces to a Ziplock bag and pour marinade over top. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes – 2 hours.

When ready to make the dish, add flour, cornstarch, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and the remaining salt and pepper to a large bowl. Mix well.

Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat, and once it is very hot, add 1 tablespoons of olive oil. Coat chicken pieces in the flour mixture, then add to the skillet and cook until each side is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken on a paper-towel covered plate. Cook remaining chicken in batches, adding more/less oil if needed. I used 3 tablespoons, but depending on how coated your chicken pieces are you may need a bit more.

Serve with rice and a few tablespoons of honey mixed with lemon zest for dipping.

This is such a great weeknight meal. The marinade takes boring chicken to a new level and the chicken is even tastier dipped in a little honey.

The flour came off the chicken. I have no idea what I did wrong. The next time I make this recipe, I will skip the flour, and just marinade the chicken in the lemon/honey marinade for long. That was a seriously tasty marinade. Thanks for sharing.

My mom and I loved this! I diluted the honey/lemon zest with a little water, and drizzled it on top of the chicken and the rice.

This was tasty and I was surprised at how well the coating stayed on.
