Lemon & Sage Chicken

Morgan Shepard


What to have for dinner during the busy holiday season? Easy lemon sage chicken! We tweaked a recipe from the spruce cooking chicken breasts on the stove top for a healthy & delicious dinner. Our version uses Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh sage, lemon & shallot. Serve with orzo, quinoa or rice, sliced in a salad the next day for lunch. Serves 4-6

Easy Ingredients: 

  • 2 pounds of fresh skinless chicken breasts or chicken pieces
  • ¼ cup Villa Gabriella Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage chopped
  • 1 clove of shallot crushed & chopped (or substitute with garlic)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt 
  • ½ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

Simple Directions:

  • Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, sage, shallot, salt & pepper, set aside. 
  • Lightly pound chicken breast on each side between 2 pieces of wax paper.
  • Pour the marinade into a container with cover or a glass baking dish.
  • Add the chicken to the container, turning pieces once to coat with the marinade.
  • Cover & refrigerate for 1 hour, turning the pieces once every 15 minutes.
  • Brush a large skillet with olive oil, set over medium heat.
  • Arrange chicken onto the hot skillet & discard the marinade. 
  • Cook chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side. 
  • Chicken will be done when the thickest part is firm to the touch & tests 165°F on an instant-read thermometer. 
  • Serve hot as an entree & enjoy!
