Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the chicken pieces and garlic. Toss with the flour just to coat, and shake off excess.
  2. Heat the margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces; cook and stir until browned. Add the mint leaves and lemon juice, cover and steam for about 5 minutes, just until the chicken is cooked through. Do not over cook the chicken or it will be tough.

This was a pleasant experience all the way around. The taste was fresh and delightful and the recipe so easy to do my daughter has re-created it several times to impress her friends. Try it with a lemon/herb rice and sesame green beans. Letting the chicken "steam" in the pan gives it a nice texture.

Very easy to prepare..but it had an odd taste. Not a bad taste..but very different. Don't think I would make it again.

This is one of my favorite recipes. We had a profusion of mint growing in our herb garden that needed to be eaten and this chicken recipe hit the spot! I kept the chicken breasts whole and used butter instead of margarine. Fabulous recipe. Thank you mom for me!

A simple, delicious meal. I added salt and pepper to the garlic and flour mix and let it lie for about ten minutes. The mint and lemon complemented each other perfectly. I would cut the margarine in half next time. Added a bit of chilli powder at the end. Thanks for sharing!

This chicken was really good. Although next time, I will cut the lemon by about half or so, and add at least two or three more, or more, cloves of fresh garlic. My husband and I really love garlic. Will make again however, the flavors are best in the summertime.

This recipe was GREAT! The texture and consistency of the finished pieces were almost like chicken nuggets--except they were minty tasting! We really enjoyed these and I can see having them again and again.

I read other reviews before making this. I used 1/8 cup of lemon juice which was more than enough. I thought that it could of used a bit more mint, but overall the family really enjoyed this.

This was a nice easy recipe. I used less garlic, but only because I generally despise garlic. Made this for my girlfriend one night and she has cravings for it all the time. Especially nice for a nice day outside with a mojito
