Let the fragrance of lemon lead you to a tasty oasis—and the best part is all you need is one pan to get there (a citrus zester is key, too!). This skillet supper features deliciously browned chicken breasts, started with a quick sear and finished in the pan with their accompaniments. That means a soft grain base of wholesome bulgur, cooked down with carrots, onions and zucchini, and kissed with butter for a velvety effect.

Start the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 3 to 4 min. per side, until partially cooked. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Add the chicken, demi-glace, juice of ½ the lemon wedges, 1 cup water (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P; bring to a boil.
