Quick and easy lemon pepper chicken recipe with garlic lemon butter sauce, homemade with simple ingredients in one pot over stovetop in 30 minutes.
Sprinkle lemon pepper and salt on both sides of the chicken breast.
Then, sprinkle some flour on both sides of the breast. It doesn't have to be perfectly coated.
Tip: If you want a more even coating, mix together lemon pepper, salt and flour in a bowl and dredge the chicken breasts in this mixture to coat them more fully.
Next, heat oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
Place the chicken and pan fry one side until golden brown. Then flip it over and pan fry the other side until cooked through.
Remove from pan and keep aside.
In the same pan, add butter, garlic and saute for a few seconds until fragrant.
Mix in lemon juice, lemon zest and season with a little more salt, if you like.
Add chicken back into the pan and coat it in this garlic lemon butter sauce.
Garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
