This creamy lemon and dill skillet chicken recipe is a true crowd-pleaser and makes for a perfect weeknight dinner. Chicken cutlets cook quickly, taking this recipe from skillet to table in only 20 minutes. The drippings and fond from the pan are at the heart of the tangy, vibrant pan sauce that you serve with the chicken. Drizzle any extra over pasta, rice or mashed potatoes served on the side.

Ingredients

  • 4 (4 ounce) chicken cutlets

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 small lemon, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill, plus more for garnish

Directions

  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the chicken; cook, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.


  2. Add shallot and garlic to the pan; cook, stirring until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add broth; cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cream, lemon juice, lemon slices and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt; simmer until slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chicken, with any accumulated juices, and dill; turn to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle with additional dill, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
