Limonchello Chicken

limonchello chicken

You will love this lemony flavored chicken! The recipe is simple to make and takes very little time to prepare.

I served the chicken with my recipe for Green Bean Rice which pares perfectly with lemony sauce.


Serves 4-8


4 boneless chicken breasts (cut in half and pounded to 1/4-1/2 inch thick)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 cup chicken broth (or 1/2 chicken bouillon cube and 1 cup water)

1/4 cup Limonchello liquor

Zest of 1 lemon

Lemon slices

1/2 teaspoon dry oregano

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 stick margarine or butter


Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Coat with flour and set aside.

Heat 1/2 of the olive oil and 1/2 of the butter in a saute pan until hot. Cook 1/2 of the chicken in the oil for about 5-8 minutes turning chicken over on each side until golden brown. Set cooked chicken aside. Add the remaining oil and butter and cook the rest of the chicken and set aside.

Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth and limonchello and cook for about 3 minutes on high for the liquor to evaporate.

Place the chicken back into the pan. Add the lemon zest and simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Add the oregano, cover and let sit on low heat until ready to serve. Top with fresh lemon slices and serve.
