- 4 chicken breasts
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh (or dried) oregano, chopped
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ cup chicken stock
- ½ cup (95 g) Sola® sweetener
- 4 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
- Juice of 2 lemons
- ½ lemon, cut into ½-inch slices

- Prepare the chicken breasts: cut away fat and skin and season well with the salt, black pepper, and chopped oregano.
- Place a large frying pan over high heat and add the olive oil.
- When the pan is hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for four minutes on each side until golden-brown.
- Add the chicken stock, Sola® sweetener, garlic, wholegrain mustard, lemon juice, lemon slices, lemon zest, and oregano sprigs.
- Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat to medium. Cook the chicken for 10 minutes with the lid on then remove the lid and turn the heat back to high.
- Continue to cook, spooning the sauce over the chicken to glaze for approximately 15 more minutes.
- When the chicken is ready, the sauce will have reduced to a sticky glaze and the center of the chicken will be cooked through and tender.
- Serve immediately, with a lemon wedge on each plate.
