How to Make Lemon Pepper Chicken under 30 minutes

Get these ingredients! 

- 4 medium chicken breasts

- Sea salt

- Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

- 2½ teaspoon garlic powder

1. Cook the chicken breasts

1. Pour the olive oil into the cast iron skillet. Make sure the heat is medium-high.

2. Once the skillet is hot enough, add the chicken breast. Now, cook each side for around 4 to 5 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165°F.

3. Transfer them to a plate and set them aside when cooked.

2. Prepare the creamy lemon sauce

1. In the same skillet, add onions and garlic, then deglaze the pan with lemon juice and cook for a minute.

2. Add chicken broth, Italian seasoning, and lemon zest. Then, stir in heavy cream and let it thicken.

3. Once the sauce is thick enough, add the cooked chicken back into the skillet and heat it through.

4. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, sprinkle some chopped parsley, and garnish with lemon slices.

Avoid overcooking for tender keto chicken breasts. Stick to the suggested cooking time of 4 to 5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. If you want consistent results, consider pounding the chicken breasts to achieve uniform thickness. This way, you'll get soft filets every time.
