Lemon Glazed Chicken
Back to Blog List

I seems like forever since I cooked.  Super Bowl Sunday, Jim had to fast for a colonoscopy.  I had leftovers for lunch and a cheese sandwich for dinner.  Monday I made this chicken dish from the skinnykitchen.com site.  I tried to turn it into a Instant Pot recipe, but that did not work so well.  In the back of the recipe book that give you cooking times for almost everything.  Chicken breast boneless is 6-8 minutes.  The recipe warns you that the sauce could start to burn.  If it does add a little water.  Sure enough the Instant Pot flashed burn and I had to release the pressure, add water and just finished it on sauté.  So stick to the directions.  It is going to be 1 pot no matter what.  


3/4 C Panko bread crumbs

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 t salt

1/4 t pepper

4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

1/4 C fresh lemon juice

1/4 C honey

1-2 t Tabasco Sauce


Cooking spray


  1. In a shallow dish, add bread crumbs, garlic, salt, pepper and blend together.  Dredge both sides of chicken in crumb mixture.
  2. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, honey and Tabasco.  Set aside.
  3. Coat a large non-stick pan with cooking spray.  Add the EVOO and heat over medium heat.  
  4. Add chicken, cover and sauce until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side.  Remove the chicken to a plate.  
  5. Add lemon-honey glazed to pan.  Cook for about 30 seconds until syrupy.  Return cooked chicken to pan, flipping chicken once to coat with the glaze.  
  6. Remove from pan and serve.  

I served this with instant mashed potatoes and stir fried snow peas in brown sesame oil.  

For Christmas I received a package called Chocolate Orange Mug Cake.  

I figured this would be a good time to serve it to Jim.  Warning about some of these easy mixes.  This was a rip off.  In the package was essentially a 1/4 -1/3 C cocoa.  To this you add 6 T OJ, 6 T flour, 6 T sugar, 1/4 C vegetable oil, and 1 egg.  You mixed it up and put it in two mugs.  Microwaved each mug for 90 seconds.  Jim said it was very good.  I am going to try to follow these directions again using my own cocoa and see how it turns out.  I bet the same.  the package says coffee spice, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cardamom, all spice, ginger, mace, orange peel, I have all that in my spice rack and I bet just a pinch each.
