Barby's Lemon Broccoli Chicken

My mother in law is awesome, incredibly helpful, amazing with the kids, a retired nurse and a lactation consultant all wrapped up into one amazing Mom. She originally gave me this recipe during my bridal shower, but the best story I have of it came a couple of years later, after the birth of our daughter, the Pickle in the Middle. Barby made this dish one of the first nights I was home and it is probably the reason I quickly discovered that dear daughter had colic! Yummy in the tummy, but not necessarily tummy friendly for a nursing infant! :)

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 whole chicken breasts; split, skinned and boned
1 can cream of broccoli soup
1/4 cup milk
2 Teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 thin lemon slices
1 package frozen broccoli, cooked according to directions.

  1. In a skillet, heat the oil.
  2. Cook the chicken in oil until browned on both sides.
  3. Spoon off fat.
  4. Combine soup and milk, stir in lemon juice and pepper.
  5. Pour over chicken.
  6. Top each chicken piece with lemon slice.
  7. Reduce heat to low.
  8. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, or until chicken is fork tender, stirring occasionally.
  9. Serve with broccoli on top.
