Simple Chicken Saute

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Chicken breast halves,
  • -skinned and boned
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tb Green onions, chopped
  • 4 Mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tb Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tb Soft margarine
  • 2 ts Fresh parsley, chopped


Rinse the chicken, remove all visible fat, dry throughly. Flatten slightly
with the heel of your hand to attain uniform thickness for even cooking.
Heat the olive oil in a 10" non-stick skillet. Saute the chicken for 3
minutes each side, or until just firm to the touch. Remove chicken from pan
and keep warm. Using the same skillet, saute the green onions until
translucent. Add mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice
and boil til most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the soft margarine.
Spoon this mixture over the chicken and sprinkle parsley on top.

(To bring the fat down even further, I spray the skillet with cooking spray
rather than use olive oil, and substitute 1 tsp. olive oil for the
margarine. This makes the sauce a bit thin, but it really does bring down
the fat content, eliminates the saturated fat altogether, and tastes better
