Honey Lemon Chicken

A perfect chicken for hot summer days.  The refreshing taste of lemon in a light sauce that compliments green beans or asparagus that you can serve with the chicken breasts.




Honey Lemon Chicken

2 - 4 chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Sauce 

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

To thicken the sauce - mix together 1/4 cup water and 2 tbsp flour and stir in the mixture above when it's simmering

In a large frying pan, heat olive oil with garlic clove in it.  Remove the garlic clove before it burns, you only want to use it for the flavor.  Season both sides of the chicken breasts and place in the hot pan.  Brown on both sides.  Remove from pan and place on a serving dish with lemon slices.  Serve with lemon sauce.
