Rosemary Lemon Chicken Strips

Rosemary Lemon Chicken Strips
Servings: 4 Prep 2 mins Cook 8 mins Start to Finish 10 mins


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or 1 each butter and olive oil - my preference)
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast, sliced against the grain into 1/2-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)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lemon

Make It

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.
