Lemon Chicken with Broccoli

lemon chicken

Happy Hump Day! Tonight I tried out a new recipe so that I could use the new Campbell's Flavor Boost Chicken Packets. I saw them in the store and they intrigued me (I'm easily intrigued in the grocery store). Wow is all I have to say about this dish. We were actually in the mood to go out to eat and had to fight the temptation, so I wasn't overly excited to cook tonight, but boy was I pleasantly surprised! This will make the favorites list - it's pretty simple, healthy, and the flavor is just delicious! NOTE: I did make some modifications and recommend you follow this instead. The measurements in the recipe wouldn't have given this much sauce...we can't be having that! Ingredients

1 large lemon

1/2 lime (optional - I added this myself)

2 tablespoons olive oil

6 chicken thighs (boneless, skinless) - approximately 1.5 pounds

1/2 cup yellow onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

2 packets Swanson® Flavor Boost™ Concentrated Chicken Broth

3 cups broccoli florets (I used one SteamFresh bag of florets)


Grate 1 tablespoon lemon zest and then juice the lemon (and half the lime if you are using both). I used both because the lemon didn't produce a lot of juice.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned on all sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet. Pour off any fat if needed (I didn't need to since I used skinless thighs).

Reduce the heat to medium. Add more oil if you need to...I did not need to since I did not pour off the fat. Add the onion and garlic and cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in the concentrated broth and lemon/lime juice. Return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Stir the broccoli and lemon zest in the skillet. Cover and cook until the broccoli is tender-crisp.
