Lemon Butter Chicken


  • 1 1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 6 thighs)
  • 4 tbsp light butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fat free chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a large bowl, rub chicken with oil, paprika, salt and pepper.
  3. Melt butter in a medium sized skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned on each side, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove chicken and set aside. Discard excess fat from pan.
  4. Melt remaining 2 tbsp butter in skillet. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to a simmer.
