Ingredients used:

  • 1 pound - Red potatoes
  • 0.5 teaspoon - Salt
  • 4 none - Boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons - Butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon - Dried dill weed
  • 0.33 cup - Water
  • 2 tablespoons - Lemon juice
  • 0.25 teaspoon - Salt
  • 1 dash - Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons - Fresh parsley

Recipe steps:

  • In a large saucepan, combine 6 cups of water, potato wedges and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Drain well.
  • To flatten each chicken breast half, place boned side up between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from the center, gently pound chicken with the flat side of a mallet or rolling pin until it's about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap.
  • Spray a 2-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter or margarine until bubbly. Add chicken and cook for 6 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken and sprinkle with dill. Cook for an additional 3–5 minutes, or until chicken is fork-tender and the juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet, and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons butter or margarine, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • To serve, place the cooked potatoes on a serving platter and arrange the chicken around the outer edges. Spoon the sauce over the top and sprinkle with parsley.
