Simple Lemon Chicken Recipe

  • cooking spray
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  1. Heat skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts in the skillet until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes on each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  2. Cut chicken into strips.
  3. Whisk apple juice, lemon juice, cornstarch, and chicken bouillon in a skillet until smooth.
  4. Heat skillet over medium heat, stirring until sauce is thick and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes; continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
  5. Place chicken strips into the apple juice sauce and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes before serving.
