  • 2 chicken breasts sliced into fillets/strips
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • ½ medium onion sliced or diced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cream I use 18%
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 teaspoons fresh dill*


  • Heat a non- stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil and then the chicken. Cook 2-3 minutes per side or until almost cooked through. Add the onions and cook for about 4 minutes, until softened.
  • Remove the chicken to a plate temporarily and add the broth. Cook down for about 10 minutes or until reduced by aout half.
  • Add the chicken and the cream and heat thorugh for a few minutes.
  • Add the butter and whisk while it melts. Remove from heat, add the dill, season with salt and pepper and then serve.


  1. Use dried dill if that is what you have.  Use about a teaspoon and adjust if you want more dill flavor.
  2. I use unsalted butter to control the salt in the final dish.  You can try salted butter and then adjust how much salt you add at the end.
