Lemony Chicken

A simple recipe using boneless chicken breasts.

ingredients

serves 4
1 stick (8 tbsp) 4 oz (112 g) butter softened
4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
grated zest of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon water
2/3 cup (150 ml) 1/4 pint soured cream

method

1. Heat the oven to 375°F (190°C) gas mark 5.

2. Put the butter and lemon zest into a bowl and mix together.

3. With a sharp knife, make three deep cuts in each chicken breast and spread the butter into the cuts.

4. Place chicken in a shallow ovenproof dish so they just touch. Sprinkle with lemon juice and seasoning.

5. Cook in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes, until tender.

6. Lift on to a warm serving dish. Add 1 tablespoon water to the cooking dish and stir round, scraping the bottom of the dish to dislodge any bits on the dish.

7. Return the dish to the oven for 1 - 2 minutes to heat through.

8. Stir the soured cream into the cooking dish and again heat through in the oven for a few minutes.

9. Pour sauce over the chicken and serve.
