How to Steam Chicken Breasts

Many of us are searching for ways to have a healthy meal that is also flavorful. There are three ways to make chicken healthier; 1. Baking 2. Stir-Fry and 3. Steamed. Have you ever steamed your chicken breasts? Serves 4 Total Time: 40 minutes


4 skinless boneless small chicken breasts or 2 large chicken breasts, split lengthwise
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon sage
Salt and pepper m to taste
Lemon zest from 1 lemon, then sliced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)


In your Dutch Oven add enough water for a 1/2 “ depth. Place a steamer basket in the bottom (water level should be below the basket). Place the lemon slices in the bottom of the basket.

Pat dry your chicken then season with herbs and salt and pepper. Place chicken on top of the lemon slices and top with lemon zest and red pepper flakes, if using. Bring the water to boil over high heat then cover and reduce the heat to medium. Cook 25 minutes without lifting the lid. Water should simmer enough to make steam escape under the lid. Chicken is done when the internal temperature of the thickest part of the breast reaches 160F-165F. Serve immediately with your favorite sides. Easy Peasy!
