  • 1-2 tbsp Lemon Pepper It has a strong flavor, Adjust according your taste
  • Salt To taste
  • 1/3 cup All-purpose flour
  • 4 Chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 1 clove Garlic Finely minced
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp Parsley Fresh, Roughly chopped


  • 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!
