    A meal for one and simple to make. A chicken breast is sauted and sauced with butter and Parmesan cheese.

    Serves: 1 

    • 110g butter
    • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (or to taste)
    • 40g grated Parmesan cheese

    Preparation:2min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:14min 

    1. Melt 1/4 of the butter in a medium frying pan over medium high heat.
    2. Add chicken to frying pan and brown for 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally. When chicken is browned, add remaining butter and lemon juice (add extra lemon juice to taste).
    3. Sauté for 6 minutes over medium heat, then remove chicken from frying pan. Add cheese to frying pan, stir all together until mixture has reached the consistency of a sauce, then pour the sauce over the chicken and serve hot.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I scaled back on the butter, though. When I first put the parmesan into the hot butter to make the sauce, it scalded and clumped into chunks. So I had to strain them out and pour the sauce from the pan into a small dish, wait for it to cool, then add the cheese and a little water. It turned out fine, and delicious! - 08 Oct 2008


    I used freshly grated cheese, followed the recipe exactly, and ended up throwing the "sauce" away. The chicken breasts cooked in the butter & lemon juice alone was pretty tasty. This won't be staying in my recipe box. - 08 Oct 2008


    My god.. All that butter for one person! However, it was really good. I too, couldn't get the cheese to combine w/ the butter to make the sauce; the two separated when I poured it over the chicken. - 08 Oct 2008
