Lemon Chicken

Lemon Chicken is, by far, one my favorite quick meals that tastes like I spent more time on it than I actually do.  And the wonderful thing is that it's relatively healthy.  Add some brown rice and steam some broccoli and you are good to go.  I find myself making Lemon Chicken more and more often.  I love when there is a bit leftover (which rarely happens) and I can slice it up and throw on a salad for lunch the next day! 

Lemon Chicken
Here's What You Need:
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 Tablespoons butter
4 chicken breasts (pounded thin)
4 lemon slices

Here's What You Do:
In a bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper.  Dip the chicken in the flour mixture to coat.

In a large skillet, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat.  Add the chicken to the skillet.  Cook until lightly browned and turn the chicken once.

Remove the chicken to a plate and keep warm.  I like to cover the plate with a piece of foil to trap the heat inside.  In the same skillet, add the chicken broth and lemon slices.

Bring to a boil over high heat, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.  Look at the steam rising up from the skillet!  If you only knew how good my kitchen is smelling right about now!  Stir in the remaining 1 Tablespoon of butter.

Return the chicken to the skillet, placing the lemon slices on top of each piece of chicken.  Lower the heat and allow the broth to slightly reduce.  Serve immediately.
