Rosemary Lemon Chicken Strips
This Recipe:
Skill Level:
Serves: 4
Start to Finish: 10 min
Prep: 2 min
Cook: 8 min
Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil (or 1 each butter and olive oil—my preference)

1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast, sliced against the grain into ½-inch thick medallions (it’s easiest to slice the chicken when slightly frozen)

4 garlic cloves, peeled and halved lengthwise

Needles from 1 sprig fresh rosemary (or a pinch dried)

½ teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste

Freshly ground black pepper

Freshly squeezed juice of ½ lemon

Directions:

1.  In a large, heavy pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the chicken, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook undisturbed until the chicken begins to brown, 2 minutes. Turn the chicken strips and continue to cook, tossing a few more times, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.

2.  Take the pan off the heat; squeeze in the lemon juice and stir well. Taste and season with a pinch of salt if needed.
