Brown butter chicken is a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Served with caramelized onion mashed potatoes, this is a dinner that your family will ask for over and over again.
Before I started, I thought I may have bit off more than I could chew with this 5 days of Cooking Light recipe extravaganza. That was before I started. Now that I have finished it, I am so glad that I did it! I think I have made a new family favorite dinner. I rarely have four clean plates, no whining, bribing, or pouting at the dinner table. This easy dinner recipe can be summed up in one word: SUCCESS !!
I found this brown butter chicken recipe at Cooking Light. I did adapt their recipe a little to suit my family’s tastes. Never be afraid to make substitutes to a recipe. It makes the dish your own, and it allows you to keep your family happy, too. ????
To make brown butter chicken, you’ll need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts . Either pound them to desired thinness or butterfly them. I butterflied mine.
1/2 cup flour
4 Tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter
2 fresh sage sprigs (stems)
2 large shallots, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
One of the important parts of this recipe is the brown butter. There is a video that explains how to make it my friend Becca’s recipe post for Brown Butter Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I served the chicken with a side of caramelized onion mashed potatoes. (Please try not to drool onto your keyboard) ????
