With a lemony, buttery sauce that won't loose its zing as days go by, this Lemon Chicken is one to bolster your week of meals—adding a pop of brightness (and less stress!) this holiday season. And there's breading, so no worry about sogging.
Make 3 batches (six chicken breasts) of this lemon chicken Sunday night to kick off your work week. Here are a few ways to eat this chicken all week.
Chicken Piccata: This idea comes from Renee B—rewarm the chicken with capers and you have chicken piccata. Serve over spaghetti.
Lemon Chicken and Pepe Soup: Shred the chicken breasts into the soup's broth along with garbanzo beans, any other seasonal vegetable, and lettuce.
Lemon Harissa Chicken: Kick up your leftover chicken by warming it with Greek yogurt and spices to make a creamy lemon sauce. Serve alongside wild rice and roast vegetables.
Chicken Pot Pie: Cut the lemon chicken into cubes, cook with milk, chicken stock, and a bag of frozen vegetables to make the filling for the pot pie. Place in a baking pan and seal the top with a layer of pie dough.
