A lighter variation, blending Parmesan with lemon and butter for an amazingly simple yet sophisticated dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat.
Add chicken to skillet and brown for 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally. When chicken is browned, add remaining 6 tablespoons of butter and the lemon juice (if desired, add extra lemon juice to taste).
Saute for 6 minutes over medium heat, then remove chicken from skillet. Add cheese to skillet, stir all together until mixture has reached the consistency of a sauce, then pour the sauce over the chicken and serve hot.
