2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning

1/3 cup butter

2 lemons, sliced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt. and lemon pepper. Coat chicken breasts with flour mixture.

 

In a 12-inch skillet cook the chicken breasts in the hot butter, half at a time, over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes on each side or until brown and no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet. Add lemon slices to skillet; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.

 

Return all of the chicken to the skillet, overlapping chicken breasts slightly. Drizzle lemon juice over the chicken breasts. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until pan juices are slightly reduced.
