Braised Lemon Chicken Breasts
From Cook's Country
Chicken and lemon are a classic pairing, but infusing the meat with bold lemon flavor—as we wanted to do in our Braised Lemon Chicken Breasts recipe—can be difficult. Braising the chicken in a lemon sauce proved the best way to retain the lemony flavor, and reducing the braising liquid to make a sauce added another level of lemon flavor. Adding a few lemon slices to the braising liquid as it reduced provided a fresh lemon flavor and brightened the whole dish. Finally, adding sour cream and honey further enhanced our Braised Lemon Chicken Breasts’ lemon flavor.
Adding the sour cream to the sauce off heat will prevent the sauce from curdling. Shallots are used as a vegetable here, but if you prefer you can add one medium red onion, minced, with the whole garlic cloves instead.
