Easy Poached Chicken with Lemon Sauce

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Trim the chicken of any fat, and add to a medium pan with the peppercorns and garlic, and cover with water by about 5 centimetres (2 inches). You will be adding the broccolini, and need to add enough water to cover this also.

Step 2Bring to a simmer on low-medium heat uncovered. This should take around 8-10 minutes.

Step 3Once simmering, add the lid and cook covered, 10–15 minutes until cooked through - this will depend on the thickness of the chicken.

Step 4Cut the ends off the broccolini, and cut in half. Add the broccolini (or broccoli florets) to the chicken in the last 4-5 minutes of the cooking time, enough for the broccoli to get crisp-tender.

Step 5In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice and salt to taste. Stir through the chopped parsley.

Step 6To serve, slice the chicken against the grain.

Step 7Serve with the broccolini and the lemon sauce. East immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
