Yum! Our taste panel loved this version of lemon chicken from Carrie Palmquist of Canova, South Dakota. There's a lot of flavor and it doesn't seem light at all.

"I jazzed this up by adding poultry seasoning to the flour coating, adding minced garlic to the pan with the chicken, and a splash of white wine todeglaze the pan. I also used 1 cup broth instead of 1/3 cup. This was easy and delicious. Everyone liked it."
