Chicken Limone Ingredients

First, let’s gather our ingredients. You will need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

How To Make Chicken Limone

Step 1: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Then, coat them in the flour, shaking off any excess.

Step 2: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside on a plate.

Step 3: In the same skillet, add the butter and let it melt. Once the butter is melted, add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.

Step 4: Add the lemon juice, white wine, and capers to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for a few minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Step 5: Return the chicken to the skillet and spoon the sauce over the chicken. Let it cook for a couple of minutes, or until the chicken is heated through.

Step 6: Remove the skillet from the heat and top the chicken with chopped fresh parsley.

And there you have it, your Chicken Limone is now ready to be served! I like to serve it with a side of pasta or a green salad.

Chicken Limone Faq’s

Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast?

Yes, you can use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Keep in mind that the cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the chicken thighs.

Can I use dried parsley instead of fresh parsley?

Yes, you can use dried parsley instead of fresh parsley. However, keep in mind that the flavor will not be as strong. Use about 1 tsp of dried parsley for every 2 tbsp of fresh parsley.

Can I make this dish ahead of time?

You can prep this dish. Follow the directions until the sauce thickens. Let the skillet cool after the sauce is done. Refrigerate the sauce and chicken separately. Reheat sauce and chicken in a skillet over medium heat before serving.

How To Serve Homemade Chicken Limone

Chicken Limone has several serving possibilities. Serve it with spaghetti or fettuccine. The pasta will absorb the lemon butter sauce, making a tasty entrée.

Serve it with a green salad. The sauce’s lemon acidity and fresh greens create a wonderful flavor and texture balance.

Asparagus, carrots, and zucchini are good oven-roasted accompaniments. The vegetables make dinner healthy.

Serve with rice or quinoa for a complete dinner. This will add taste and texture and make it heartier.

Chicken Limone is delicious with any side. The flavors and textures complement each other, making a delightful supper.

How To Store and Reheat Chicken Limone

Storing and reheating Chicken Limone makes it easy to enjoy even on hectic nights. Store sauce and chicken separately to maintain quality.

Cool the dish to room temperature before storing it. After cooling, store the chicken in an airtight container and the sauce separately. Zip-top bags work too. Date the containers so you know when you created them.

Remove the chicken and sauce from the fridge and allow them to warm up before reheating. Simmer the sauce in a pan over medium heat. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Heat chicken for two minutes.

Reheat it in the oven. Place chicken in an oven-safe dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Pour sauce over chicken and bake for 15-20 minutes until heated through.

Reheating changes the dish’s texture and flavor, so it’s best eaten fresh. Reheating it will let you enjoy it again and again.
