Sautéed Chicken Tenders with Peas and Mint












Sautéed Chicken Tenders with Peas and Mint

Ingredients
  •  flour for dredge
  • 10 oz.  chicken tenders
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups  shelled fresh or frozen English peas
  • 6 oz. sugar snap peas, strings removed
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh mint
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

Directions

1. Spread the flour mix on a plate. Cut the chicken tenders in half crosswise. Season the chicken lightly with salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour.

2. In a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the chicken and sauté until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the peas and sugar snap peas to the pan and season lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits on the pan bottom. Cover the pan and boil until the vegetables are almost tender, about 3 minutes.

3. Return the chicken and any juices on the plate to the pan and add the mint. Simmer, uncovered, stirring almost constantly, until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken, about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Divide the chicken and vegetables between 2 warmed plates and serve immediately. Serves 2.
