Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. To make it extra simple to prepare herb butter, take the butter out of the fridge 30-60 minutes before starting (optional).
  2. Start with the herb butter. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl and let sit until it’s time to serve.
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Fry in butter or oil on medium heat until the filets are cooked through. Lower the temperature towards the end to avoid dry chicken filets.
  4. Serve the chicken on a bed of leafy greens and let a generous amount of herb butter melt on top.

    This is delicious. It almost had a buttery flavor reminiscent of movie theater popcorn but in the best way possible (because that sounds like it wouldn't taste good.... it was great!). I will definitely be cooking this again.

    Can I put a tbs of olive oil/red wine vinegar on my side greens? Is that ok?

    This was fabulous. I used coconut oil for frying. Everyone loved it. YUM

    It was good but kind of bland compared to the other recipes I've tried on this website.

    have a question about the portions...I read that each portion is enough to create two meals dinner and lunch the next day. So if the chicken dinner for 1 calls for one boneless chicken breast then is the dinner portion half of the breast? Or is the portion for 1 for just that meal, dinner?
