  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place in the melted butter. Cook chicken, flipping frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon garlic powder over chicken; flip and sprinkle 1 tablespoon garlic powder on second side. Cook each side for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour lemon juice over each side of chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This is a very 'basic' recipe to start out with, but it needs a lot more herbs in it, in order to make it tasty. Chop up and add in some fresh Parsley, Thyme, Rosemary and Sage.

I really enjoyed this chicken. I pounded it flat before putting it in the pan so that it would cook more evenly. I did cut back on the amount of garlic powder and only used 1 Tbsp. I used a mini...

Extremely simple and my family loved it too. I would recommend pounding the chicken flat in order to get uniform thickness for cook time.

Very simple to get together, but, really tasty! Don't be hesitant to use the full amount of garlic powder in the recipe. I was afraid it would be overpowering, but, it turned out just perfect....
