Nutritional Guidelines (per serving)

(Nutrition information is calculated using an ingredient database and should be considered an estimate.)


  1. Toss chicken and 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) flour in medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Melt 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) Becel® Light margarine in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  3. Stir 1 cup (250 mL) broth and garlic into same skillet and bring to boil. Add broccoli and simmer covered until broccoli is almost tender, about 3 minutes. Combine remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) broth and 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) flour in small cup. Stir into skillet and cook until sauce is slightly thickened and broccoli is tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, lemon peel and remaining 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) margarine. Season, if desired, with fresh ground black pepper.
