Tasty Chicken Breasts Sauted With Coriander

Who does not love chicken? And chicken breasts are the most economical as there is less waste. Here is a tasty chicken recipe and I will serve it with Basmati rice I cooked in a Zojirushi 6 Cup Rice Cooker Steamer. With the Zojirushi 6 Cup Rice Cooker Steamer your rice is always perfect and you do not have to pay any attention to it while it is cooking.

So, here is your recipe:

Chicken Breasts Sauteed With Coriander


  • 1 lb chicken breasts, skinned and boned
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 3 fl oz plain low-fat yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp single cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped shallot
  • 1 small tomato, skinned seeded and chopped
  • ¾ oz fresh coriander leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 extra coriander leaves for garnish
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cornflour, mixed with 1 tbsp water
  • 6 fl oz unsalted chicken stock



  • In a frying pan, heat the oil over medium to high heat.
  • Sauté the chicken breasts on one side for 5 minutes, turn the chicken breasts and sprinkle with the pepper and half of the salt.
  • Sauté the chicken breasts on the other side until they are firm but still springy to the touch for about 4 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken breasts to a heated platter and keep it warm.


  1. In a small bowl, stir the yoghurt and cream into the cornflour mixture.
  2. Add the stock and lemon juice to the pan
  3. Now you add the garlic and shallot, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in the tomato, the yoghurt mixture and the remaining salt.
  5. Cook over low heat for 1 minute
  6. Then you add the chopped coriander.
  7. Pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish each breast with a fresh coriander leaf, if desired.
Serve this dish with fluffy rice and a mixed salad. Any vegetables will also taste very good with this chicken.
