One of my friends, Beth, requested this recipe from the list! It’s one of my favorites. I have made it several times and love it. It is from my Rachael Ray cookbook.
LEMON POPPY SEED CHICKEN
- 2 1/2 cups chicken stock, divided
- 3 to 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 cup flour
- Salt and pepper
- 2 lemons zested, 1 juiced
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets, cut into bite-size pieces
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
Place a large skillet over high heat with 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil. While the skillet is heating up, place the flour on a plate. Toss the chicken in the flour to coat, shaking off any excess. Add the chicken pieces to the hot skillet. Season the chicken liberally with salt, pepper and the lemon zest, and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring every now and then to get them brown all over.
It’s fresh and comforting all at the same time. I served it this time with Rice Cooker Apple Risotto. But I usually serve it with some kind of rice and a veggie. In the cookbook she serves it with green pea and mini cous cous. I am not a fan of mint or green peas mixed with stuff.
I told you I’d post any recipes you want! If there are any on the list you are curious about don’t be afraid to ask!
