Garlic Lemon Chicken
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
Linda Chadwick of Social Circle sends in a main course and a suggestion for a side dish. She writes, "I try not to cook with a lot of excess fat. My husband liked it so much, it's become a 'comfort food' when we're tired of other meals. This is a good recipe that creates a whole meal in less than 30 minutes.”
Hands on time: Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 4
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to uniform thickness
1 teaspoon Lawry's seasoning salt
4 to 6 garlic cloves, thickly sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 lemon, cut in fourths
In a large, well-oiled skillet over medium-high heat, add garlic and cook until golden. Add chicken and cook until both sides are golden, turning once. Sprinkle almonds around chicken and saute until they begin to brown. Squeeze lemon juice over the chicken and drop the lemon pieces in the pan. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until chicken has cooked through.
