Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together egg and 1/3 of the lemon juice in a shallow dish or bowl. Mix together flour, garlic powder, and paprika in another shallow dish or bowl.

  • Dip chicken breasts in egg mixture, then flour mixture to coat.

  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Mix together broth and remaining lemon juice in a medium bowl; pour over chicken in the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 8 minutes.

  • Place chicken on a serving platter. Cover with lemon sauce and garnish with fresh lemon slices and parsley sprigs.
