Chicken with Lemon Sauce Recipe

"This delicious Italian dish is easy to prepare, but it looks like you fussed," writes Brenda Hoffman of Stanton, Michigan.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine 4 tablespoons flour, cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Coat chicken with flour, then dip into egg mixture.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter and oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine remaining, salt and pepper; stir in broth until smooth. Add apple juice to the skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits. Stir broth mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

"I thought this took a LOT more than 20 min to make (maybe because I did more than 2 chicken breast?) And I had a big mess. It was ok but not worth the work."
