Lemon Pepper Chicken Bites in a skillet with lemons

Lemon Pepper Chicken Bites

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 - 1 1/4 lbs. chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, about 1 large lemon or 2 small lemons
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces and dry them with a paper towel.
  2. Add chicken, salt ( I used about 1/2 tsp), and flour to a medium sized bowl. Toss until the chicken is evenly coated.
  3. Heat a 12 inch skillet over medium high heat. Add olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken to a single layer, leaving some space between pieces.
  4. Cook until the chicken has browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes, and then flip each piece. Cook for 3 more minutes, or until the chicken has cooked through.
  5. Add butter, garlic, pepper, and lemon juice to the pan. Toss together.  Cook for 1-2 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated and a sauce has formed.
  6. Serve immediately.
