I have made lemon butter chicken breast recipe with veggies because it is more healthy. First of all, take a two-pound boneless skinless chicken breast, prepare the basic marination mixture one egg white, half teaspoon ginger, garlic powder, dried oregano, black pepper, paprika, salt.

Then massage the chicken with the marination mixture & keep it for 5 minutes. You skip this 5 minutes also it does not impact very much of the final test of the recipe.

Now sprinkle the corn powder if you don’t have this one, you can you can try any white flour. Add olive oil to the skillet near one table spoon & fried the chicken.

Times comes to prepare the soup & veggies. Add two tablespoon non-salty butter & one tablespoon olive oil, & big chopped red onion & four to six garlic cloves fried for 1 to 2 minutes then add the chicken broth, lemon juice & lemon zest, low-fat cream is optional, helps to make the lemon butter chicken sauces properly, I have added only four tablespoons.

The lemon butter chicken thighs is ready for the platters.
