Looking for a boneless skinless chicken recipe that actually tastes good and doesn’t require a dozen ingredients? Well, I have the perfect recipe. I have been making this chicken for years. It is probably the most flavorful recipe I have come across using boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. Inspired by a Spanish tapas recipe, this sautéed lemon garlic chicken is quick, easy to make and very tasty. And it has all those good-for-you Mediterranean ingredients: olive oil, lemon and garlic.
I’m not a big fan of boneless, skinless and I usually will roast a whole chicken or make Greek style chicken stew in tomato sauce using drumsticks and other whole pieces (with skin and bone), but I make the exception for this recipe. It is so good and the secret is the intensity of the lemon and the garlic. Although this is more of an appetizer, a meze or tapas, I often make it as a main course accompanying it with a salad or mixing it with pasta. The kids love it. There is no “raw chicken” smell or texture and the chicken is very moist and juicy.
