Skinny Latina Chicken Lemonis

Recipe by Ana Q

chicken lemonis ingredients


  • 4 boneless (skin on or skinless) chicken breasts

  • 1/4 cup Skinny Latina Marinade

  • 2 Tbsp butter or olive oil

  • 1/2 a lemon zested and sliced

  • 1 Tbsp grainy or Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • (optional) flat leaf parsley and capers


  • In a skillet over medium high, heat butter until melted and lightly brown but not smoking.
  • Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Sear chicken breasts 3 to 4 minutes per side depending on thickness (I pound mine to make them thinner- for tenderness and faster cooking).
  • Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Add the Skinny Latina Marinade to skillet and reduce heat to medium.
  • Stir until Skinny Latina Marinade is reduced and thickened slightly, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add mustard and cream and stir well.
  • Add the remaining ingredients including the chicken and stir to coat well.
  • If you’re not on a carbohydrate restricted diet, this is amazing over jasmine or basmati rice, orzo, or egg noodles.
  • If you are cutting carbs try it over sautéed spinach or spaghetti squash. It’s magic!
