We have a bit of divide in our family. I much prefer chicken thighs to breasts. In my opinion, thighs are so much more flavorful. I am 100% in the minority, though. Tim, Meghan, and Luke all prefer breasts. So while I do serve chicken thighs on occasion, it’s much more common for us to have chicken breasts.
This means I’ve had to work extra hard to create chicken breast dinners that are not dry, bland, and boring. It’s really easy to get sick of chicken breasts.
I start by browning them on the stove top.
I typically use ghee for this, but you can also use avocado oil or another oil that can withstand higher heat.
Once the chicken breasts are browned, I like to add some flavorful liquid to cook with them in the oven. For this recipe I included chicken stock, mustard, balsamic vinegar, avocado oil, and garlic. This will become our sauce.
I also added lemon to cook right on the chicken breasts and in the sauce to add some extra tangy flavor. I adore lemon flavor so much and it really brightens this dish.
Once the chicken breasts are cooked, I add some arrowroot powder to thicken the sauce on the stove and dinner is ready! It’s super simple. I’ll give you some easy side dish ideas that would go well with this dinner at the end of this post, also.
