Buttery Garlic Chicken with Lemon, Parsley and Thyme

Potted Prawns

I just suddenly fancied Chicken Kiev flavours without all the bother of breast stuffing and then the rather messy task of dipping in flour, egg and breadcrumbs.  This ultra quick,  simple and easy chicken is the result.  


  • 2 chicken breasts 

  • 50g butter 

  • 2 large and fat cloves garlic, grated 

  • Juice of 1 small lemon 

  • Some fresh thyme leaves 

  • Lots of chopped parsley 

  • Salt and pepper

Potted Prawns


  • Melt the butter in a small pan 

  • Grate in the garlic 

  • Add the lemon juice, thyme and seasoning 

  • Drop in the chicken breasts, top side downwards.  Cook them gently in the delicious juices, basting occasionally, for about 6 minutes per side or until cooked through 

  • Stir in the chopped parsley and serve.
