Drippings and browned bits left from searing the chicken amp up the flavor in the lemon-herb salmoriglio sauce–all done in just one pan and in about 20 minutes.
In your bag
- 10 ounces organic baby broccoli
- 1 organic red or other bell pepper
- ¼ cup roasted almonds
- 2 boneless skin-on chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
- 1 or 2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
- 1 organic lemon
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
Make It Leaner
In Step 2, after cooking the chicken, discard the skin and you’ll cut about 35 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving (2 of those grams are from saturated fat). Make it even leaner by pouring off all but 1 teaspoon of the fat from the pan before making the sauce. Each teaspoon of rendered chicken fat adds approximately 20 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving. A little can go a long way and still provide tons of flavor.
