Easy Lemon Chicken


Here’s an easy to make chicken breast recipe that is absolutely bursting with flavor – Lemon Chicken. With just a few easy ingredients and steps to make one of the most delicious chicken recipes you’ve ever had.

You’ll want to start with boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are no more that are about 3/4″ thick.

You can always use a meat mallet to pound them to a nice even thickness. I like to use the individually wrapped frozen breasts such as Perdue. They’re the perfect size.

You’re gonna get a lot of flavor from the fresh lemon and the white wine.

A little Moscato is perfect for this recipe but any white wine or cooking wine will do.

After the chicken has cooked, the juices in the pan will make an amazing sauce that you can pour right over the chicken when serving.

Add a dash more flour to it if you want to thicken it up a bit.
