Check out this recipe for Creamy Lemon Parmesan Chicken from Delish that's ready in under an hour.

Prep time: 10 mins 

Total time: 40 mins 

Servings: 3


1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, divided

1 tsp garlic powder

Zest of 1/2 lemon

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cup baby spinach

1 cup heavy cream

2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 lemon, sliced in rounds and halved

1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil


1. On a large plate, combine flour with 1/4 cup Parmesan, garlic powder, and lemon zest. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly with a fork. Dredge each chicken breast on all sides with flour mixture. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until shimmering but not smoking. Add chicken and sear until golden, 6 minutes. Flip and cook until opposite side is golden, around 6 minutes more. Remove from pan and set aside.

3. Turn heat down to medium and add butter to pan. When butter is melted add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach and cook until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken broth, cream, and remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan and season with more salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Add lemon slices and bring to a simmer and cook until thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes more.

4. When chicken is cooked, remove skillet from heat and garnish with basil before serving.
