Serves: 4 

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 60g butter
  • 200g fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 125ml chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. Place the olive oil in a 20cm glass baking dish. Place the chicken breasts in the dish, coating each side with oil. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over all. Slice the rest of the lemon and place a lemon slice on top of each chicken piece. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until brown.
  3. In a large frying pan, melt the butter. Add the sliced mushrooms. Saute until the mushrooms are brown and have exuded their juices, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and blend. Add the chicken stock, stirring to make a medium thick sauce. Allow to reduce, adjusting with a little more stock to make a creamy sauce. Add fresh parsley at the last minute. Spoon the sauce over the lemon baked chicken breasts. Delicious!
