Chicken with Wilted Lemon Arugula
We are always happy to find a different way to cook chicken which we seem to have every week. This is real easy and goes together very quickly. The lemon adds a pronounced zesty flavor.
1 teaspoon olive oil
Dredge chicken in seasoned flour shaking off excess. Heat a skillet big enough to easily fit the chicken to medium high heat. Add oil and butter to the skillet, swirl for 20 seconds and then add the chicken breasts. Cook until well browned, approximately 3 minutes. Flip chicken and cook for 3 more minutes. Transfer to a small dish and keep warm.
Add shallot into the skillet and stir for one minute or until soft. Add wine and turn the heat up. Stir with a wooden spoon until reduced by half. Add the stock and continue cooking until again reduced by half. Turn the heat down to medium and add cream, lemon juice and lemon zest and a pinch of tarragon. Simmer the sauce gently, allowing the cream to reduce until quite thick.
Add the arugula to the sauce. Turn up the heat and allow to wilt. Taste and season as necessary. Slice chicken and serve with arugula and sauce.
Note: Easy to double. You can use boneless or skin on breasts.
