Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the chicken pieces and garlic. Toss with the flour just to coat, and shake off excess.
  2. Heat the margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces; cook and stir until browned. Add the mint leaves and lemon juice, cover and steam for about 5 minutes, just until the chicken is cooked through. Do not over cook the chicken or it will be tough.

This was a pleasant experience all the way around. The taste was fresh and delightful and the recipe so easy to do my daughter has re-created it several times to impress her friends. Try it with a lemon/herb rice and sesame green beans. Letting the chicken "steam" in the pan gives it a nice texture.

This is one of my favorite recipes. We had a profusion of mint growing in our herb garden that needed to be eaten and this chicken recipe hit the spot! I kept the chicken breasts whole and used butter instead of margarine. Fabulous recipe. Thank you mom for me!

A simple, delicious meal. I added salt and pepper to the garlic and flour mix and let it lie for about ten minutes. The mint and lemon complemented each other perfectly. I would cut the margarine in half next time. Added a bit of chilli powder at the end. Thanks for sharing!
