Breathe new life into your meals with this easy sauteed chicken recipe that takes on the flavors of rosemary and lemon in one quick dish.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 4chicken legs with thighs
  • ¼tspsea salt
  • ¼tspfreshly ground pepper
  • 2tbspolive oil
  • 2clovegarlic
  • 3shallots
  • 1thin skinned lemon
  • 2tbspfresh rosemary
  • ½cupdry white wine

  1. With a sharp knife, separate chicken drumsticks from thighs, removing any loose pieces of fat. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. In two batches, sauté chicken until golden brown on all sides. Set finished pieces aside on a plate.

  3. Pour off fat from skillet. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, then sauté garlic, shallots, lemon slices and rosemary over moderate heat until soft, which will take about 4 minutes (lemon should brown slightly around edges).

  4. Add wine and stock and bring to a boil, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet. Add cooked chicken with juices accumulated on plate.

  5. Cover, reduce heat and cook 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork. If sauce gets too thick, add a little chicken stock or water. Adjust seasoning and serve sprinkled with remaining rosemary.
