4 (5 ounces) chicken breasts*, pounded to an even 1/3-inch thickness
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 c all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced into 1 tablespoon pieces, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 c low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (optional)
Season with salt and pepper the chicken breasts.
In a mixing bowl, add flour.
Add the chicken breasts into the flour and coat each well.
Place a 12-inch skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Add 1 tbsp of butter and olive oil. Allow them to become hot.
Add the chicken breasts and sear each side for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet onto a clean plate.
In the same skillet, add garlic and saute over medium heat until aromatic.
Add the chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the skillet to get the brown bits.
Add lemon juice and stir until well blended. Allow the mixture to simmer for 2 minutes.
Add the rest of the butter and lemon zest. Stir until melted and well blended.
Put the chicken breasts back to the skillet and toss until well coated with the delicious sauce.
Remove from the heat and sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top.
Serve and enjoy!
