Lemon Thyme Chicken

"Buttered onions are a great addition to the lemon sauce of this easy supper. Best of all, it takes only a few minutes to brown the lightly breaded chicken on the stove top. -Kay Shimonek of Corsicana, Texas"

  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Set aside 4-1/2 teaspoons for sauce. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture over both sides of chicken. In a large nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same pan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add thyme and reserved flour mixture; stir until blended. Gradually stir in the broth and lemon juice, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.

Not enough flavor. Would have been more flavorful if the chicken were marinated in thyme and onions.

This was really great and easy. Everyone in my family was able to eat it, because the chicken without the sauce was very delicious too, and kid-friendly. My only hiccups were that I forgot to ...

This was great, however, I did make a few changes. I used chicken tenders (had on hand) browned chicken in pan without flour. Removed from pan, and made the sauce, put tenders back in pan to f...

This recipe was delicious! I made it for my family and friends and the all raved, especially about the sauce. It was fantastic. Good job!

Not enough flavor. The sauce was very good but needs to be a little stronger. I personally think I would have enjoyed it more if I would have added more lemon juice then what it called for. I di...
