βž” 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬:

● 3 tablespoons olive oil

● 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness (4 average to good-sized breasts)

● 1 to 2 teaspoons 21 Salute Seasoning (or poultry seasoning)

● 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste

● 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

● 1/2 cup white wine* or chicken broth, or as necessary

● 1/4 to 1/3 cup Dijon mustard (use more if you want extra sauce)

● 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

● 3 to 4 tablespoons lemon juice

● 1 to 2 tablespoons honey, optional and to taste

● lemon slices, optional for garnishing

● 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, optional for garnishing


βž” 𝙄𝙣𝙨𝙩𝙧π™ͺπ™˜π™©π™žπ™€π™£π™¨:


Step 1:

To a large skillet, add the olive oil, pounded chicken, evenly season with 21 Salute, salt, pepper, and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.



Step 2:

Do not touch, move, or disturb the chicken while it is searing. After 5 minutes, flip chicken over. It should have a medium golden color. For thicker/bigger chicken breasts, sear for 6-7 minutes.


Step 3:

Allow chicken to cook on the second side for about 5 minutes, or until done and cooked through. Again, do not disturb the chicken while it’s searing.


Step 4:

Remove chicken with a slotted spatula and place it on a plate to rest.


Step 5:

Using caution, deglaze your skillet by adding wine (or broth) and allow the liquid to bubble up and steam violently for a few seconds.


Step 6:

Add the Dijon mustard, butter, lemon juice, and allow the butter to melt, about 1 minute; stir continuously until melted and the sauce has combined.

Step 7:

Turn the heat off, taste the sauce, and if you want it a bit sweeter, optionally add honey, to taste, and stir to combine.


Step 8:

Add the chicken back into the skillet, flip it around in the lemon butter sauce, and spoon the sauce over the chicken.


Step 9:

Optionally garnish with lemon slices, parsley, and serve immediately.


βž” Notes:


1- If you don’t have white wine on hand, you can substitute with chicken broth.


2- If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can mix together 1 tbsp of cornstarch with 1 tbsp of water and add it to the skillet during step 8.


3- You can serve Lemon Dijon Chicken Skillet with a side of rice, pasta, or roasted vegetables.


βž” Conclusion:


Lemon Dijon Chicken Skillet is a delicious and easy-to-make recipe that’s perfect for a quick weeknight meal. With its tangy and savory flavors, this dish is sure to become a family favorite. So, give it a try and enjoy a delicious and satisfying meal in no time!
