Servings 6 servings


  • 4 tablespoons Italian bread crumbs you can use gluten free bread or almond meal instead
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • black pepper to taste
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon butter divided
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


  • On a dinner plate or pie plate, combine first three ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large zipper top plastic bag, add three chicken breast halves, close bag (but leave open a little so it won’t pop) and roll them out with a rolling pin to flatten. Do this again with the other three. It will just take a second and make them cook faster. Dredge chicken in breadcrumb mixture and set aside.
  • In a skillet melt half the butter over a medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook about 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet when cooked and keep warm. Add broth, lemon juice and remaining butter using a skillet to get everything up off the bottom. Cook 1 minute and spoon sauce over chicken.


SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve with brown rice, steamed broccoli and steamed baby carrots.
