Quick Lemon Pepper Chicken

This delicious and quick recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight and not difficult to make. It's a simple and classic preparation which coats the chicken with flour and egg to give it a beautiful golden crust. This method produces a juicy and flavorful chicken breast in just minutes. Having a busy schedule doesn't mean you have to sacrifice when it comes to your meal options!

Quick Lemon Pepper Chicken

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt & lemon pepper
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
4 tbsp butter

Lay the breasts down on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut them horizontally so that you will have 4 thin breasts. Season both sides generously with salt and lemon pepper.

In a shallow bowl, whisk the milk and the eggs together.

Spread the flour on a plate.

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add the juice of 1 lemon to the skillet.

Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour, shaking off the excess, then dip them in the egg and transfer to the skillet. Cook until golden, 2-3 minutes per side.

So quick and so good!
