I love thin cut chicken. It cooks up fast and you can do a lot with it. This Lemon Pepper Chicken is very flavorful yet doesn’t use a lot of ingredients. Lemons are the perfect flavor for summer because it makes everything taste fresh and light. The lemon butter sauce gives the chicken an extra juicy pop and the lemon pepper seasoning is perfect with chicken.
4 thin cut, boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning (see here)
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Sliced lemon for garnish
1) Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium high heat.
2) In a shallow bowl, mix flour, lemon pepper seasoning and salt. Dredge the chicken in flour to coat evenly.
3) Place chicken in pan and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove chicken from pan and let rest on plate until ready.
4) Melt butter in pan, add lemon juice and cook for a few minutes. Pour over chicken. Serve with lemon slices.
