  • 3 large skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • rind or zest of 2 lemons
  • lemon juice of two lemons
  • a handful of chopped fresh parsley




Step 1:

Cut the chicken breats in very thin slices crosswise (widthwise). Make the cuts as uniform as possible for even cooking time.


Step 2:

In a pan, large enough to fit the chicken, heat the olive oil until it start to shimmer a bit, and sauté the garlic for about 30 seconds.


Step 3:

Add the chicken and sauté for about 10 minutes until it starts to brown on the edges.


Step 4:

Add the lemon juice and half of the lemon zest, and bring to a boil, while deglazing the pan with a wooden spatula, scraping all the pieces stuck on the pan.


Step 5:

Remove from heat, add the parsley and blend.


Step 6:

Sprinkle with the rest of the zest and some salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with lemon wedges.
