This recipe is so easy that I'm hoping that the payback I'm experiencing with my baby lady eases up a little bit and she decides that she likes chicken, just like I did. I can handle making and eating this pretty frequently. It's quick and easy, and has really good flavors, too. And it's in cubes so it's not too hard for a little kid to eat. I'm just hoping that she will actually eat it someday.
I served it with this broccoli.
Serves 4 as a main dish
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2 in. cubes
2 T. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. freshly ground black pepper
2 T. olive oil
2 T. minced garlic
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
2 T. unsalted butter
1 lemon, quartered (optional)
Dry the chicken cubes with paper towels and then toss them with the flour, salt, and pepper. Heat the oil in a 12 in. skillet over high heat for a couple minutes, then add the chicken. Cook in one layer, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.
Combine the garlic and parsley in a small bowl with the chicken is cooking. Add the butter and the parsley mixture to the chicken and sauté for one more minute.
Serve with a lemon wedge if desired.
