Easy Weeknight Dinners: How to Make 7-Minute Chicken!

Weeknights can be hectic with school, work and sports. Follow this simple recipe for a quick, delicious and nutritious main dish for your family. The recipe is from my cookbook, "The Warm Kitchen!" 

You'll need:

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thin cutlets (request this from your butcher) or pounded thin
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon or 1/4 cup chicken broth

Here's how to make it:

  1. Mix the kosher salt with the Italian seasoning in a small bowl. With this mixture, season the chicken.
  2. Heat a medium to large sauté pan over medium to medium-high heat. When the pan is hot add the olive oil. Immediately add the chicken and step away from the pan (you might have to do in batches). Once the edges are white, turn over and finish cooking.
  3. Finish with the juice of half a lemon or the 1/4 cup chicken broth.

Dinner is done!
