Recipes for a Single Mom – Part 2

Chicken with lemon butter sauce
I like to pour the sauce in between the pieces of chicken to keep
the seasonings from washing of the chicken.

The second part of a series of recipes I’m sharing that I wrote for a single mom back in college. I met her while working at Starbucks. She was one of our semi-regular customers. She was looking to cook some healthy meals for her kids, but wasn’t sure where to start. So I offered to share a few recipes with her. Some of them were recipes I already had, and some were new ones I wrote for her.

The recipe I’m sharing today is Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce.

The Recipe:
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 6 scallions, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 portabella mushrooms, chopped
  • salt and pepper
Chicken with lemon butter sauce
I added some carrots to the veggies this time. They do really well
with the cream or butter in the sauce.

In a bowl, combine wine, chicken broth, butter, lemon juice, scallions, and garlic, and whisk together. Arrange the chicken breasts, potatoes, and mushrooms in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Slowly pour in the liquid ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 400 degrees for about an hour.
