lemony pan fried chicken.

boneless, skinless chicken breasts {for however many you plan to serve}
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp paprika
2-3 tbsp butter
2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
juice from 1 lemon

using a meat mallot, pound each chicken breast until flattened {place chicken in a large zip lock bag or between 2 sheets of plastic wrap while you flatten}. combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic salt & paprika. spread mixture over a paper plate. in large frying pan or skillet, bring butter & vegetable oil to medium heat. coat chicken breasts in flour mixture. fry 2-3 breasts at a time, depending on the size of your pan, for 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through.

after all chicken breasts are cooked, squeeze juice from 1 lemon into the pan with the remaining butter & oil. let simmer for a minute. pour a teaspoon or two of the mixture over each chicken breast. serve with veggies & rice, or perhaps some yummy scalloped potatoes!

*if you're not into lemon everything like i am, you could skip that whole last part & just have plain old fried chicken. i was also thinking that adding a little honey to the sauce would be sooo good.

If you want a yummy twist, and there are no allergies in your family - our family uses peanut oil for fried chicken. Really yummy.
