1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons butter
2
medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)

Tips
If you’re not in the mood for pasta, try serving the chicken mixture over your favorite variety of rice.
When grating the lemon peel, be careful to avoid the pith—the soft white layer between the peel and flesh of the fruit—as it can be bitter.
