Skillet Chicken and Potatoes

From Cook's Country.

Has Kim tried this? No

1 lb small red potatoes, halved

3 tbsp olive oil

1/4 c all-purpose flour

4 chicken cutlets, trimmed (6-7 oz each)

Salt and pepper

2 tbsp unsalted butter

3/4 c low-sodium chicken broth

1 tbsp chopped fresh sage (or thyme or oregano)

2 tbsp lemon juice

1. Toss potatoes and 1 tbsp oil together in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high power until tender, 4 to 5 minutes, tossing potatoes halfway through cooking.

2. Place flour in shallow dish. Season chicken with salt and pepper, dredge in flour, and shake to remove excess. Melt 1 tbsp butter with remaining 2 tbsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. When foam subsides, cook chicken until browned on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate, leaving fat in skillet, and cover chicken with foil.

3. Reduce heat to medium, add potatoes, cut side down, and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to platter. Add broth, sage, and lemon juice and using wooden spoon, scrape browned bits from skillet. Return chicken and accumulated juices to pan and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to platter with potatoes. Whisk remaining tablespoon butter into sauce, season with salt and pepper, and pour sauce over chicken and potatoes. Serve.
