Chicken in Lemon Garlic White Wine Sauce

Chicken in Lemon Garlic White Wine Sauce : is an extremely delicious and easy take on a restaurant-style Lemon Chicken recipe.

I’ve been eating Chicken in Lemon Garlic White Wine Sauce in a restaurant for many years.

The succulent chicken with a buttery lemon garlic wine sauce…almost sounded impossible to come out of home kitchen-Right?




Finally, a few weeks back I made this Chicken in Lemon Garlic White Wine Sauce at home and guess what, it turned out pretty well….since it was my first trial and the wine-lemon quantity were less……

So,I made it a couple of times with variation of wine and finally perfected it with Pinot Grigio
(As you need a dry, crisp wine for the flavors to combine well and enhance) …

I believe NOW is the time to share this simple, elegant yet succulent recipe with you all to enjoy with your family and friends.

And trust me…by the look of this dish  – it can easily make anyone say that you must have spent half a day in kitchen making it” 🙂 

Infact it’s also one of our favorite date night recipe with a glass of wine.



So, I hope you try this Chicken in Lemon Garlic White Wine Sauce recipe soon for that perfect surprise for someone special or for a perfect family meal at home. 

You can even store this recipe in the refrigerator for upto 2-3 days.

Just keep the chicken and the lemon sauce separately. When you’re ready to serve the dish, simply heat everything together and serve immediately.

For Preparing the Chicken ::

2 Large Chicken Breast – Cleaned and cut into 8 pieces

4 Tbsp AP Flour

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Pepper

1 Tbsp Butter

2 Tbsp Olive Oil – For Frying. (You may use any flavorless oil of choice)

    Cooking the Chicken -
  1. In a ziploc or bag, add flour, salt, pepper and mix evenly.
  2. Take the four chicken pieces, drop them in the Ziploc bag and shake 3-4 time to evenly coat the chicken.
  3. Remove the flour coated chicken and add the remaining chicken to this bag and coat evenly. (Now all the chicken are evenly coated with flour mix).
  4. In a large pan, add butter, oil and heat it for a minute on high flame and then reduce the flame to medium.
  5. Now, place the coated chicken pieces evenly on the pan and let them cook for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Turn the chicken to the other side and cook for another 3-4 minutes (Till light brown or golden brown – as per choice).
  7. Transfer the cooked chicken on the large plate.
  8. Preparing the Wine Sauce --
  9. In the same pan, add the butter and let it heat for a minute.
  10. Add crushed garlic, stir 3-4 times and then discard the garlic.(This will flavor the sauce with garlic without giving it an over-powering garlic flavor) BUT (You may keep the garlic as per your choice and proceed with next step).
  11. Now add white wine and stir everything well using a whisk.
  12. Let it cook for a minute on medium flame and then reduce the heat to low.
  13. Cook the wine for about 4-5 minutes and then add lemon, pepper and salt.
  14. Whisk everything to a smooth consistency and add the cooked chicken.
  15. Let the chicken cook in the sauce for 2-3 minutes and then turn off the heat.
  16. You can pour the entire content of the pan in a serving dish or can place 2-3 chicken pieces in
  17. individual plate and pour some sauce over and around it.
  18. Garnish with some sliced capers / banana pepper and serve.

    My chicken breasts were very thick and I added a third one to make a pot recipe that would last a week for a bachelor. I upped the butter, lemon juice, wine and salt and pepper to make it work. The sauce ended up creamy and delicious. I also made thin spaghetti noodles to serve it over. I also cut the breasts into cubes. I cooked everything but the noodles in cast iron, which always adds a wonderful added flavor dimension. Thank you for giving me a nice recipe to work with!
