Lemon Chicken

This meal is nice and fresh and perfect for spring and summer, and is a snap to prepare!

1 chicken breast per person

1/2 cup flour

2 lemons

1/2 -3/4 cup dry white wine (I used a sauvignon blanc)

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.  Cut half of one of the lemons in slices.  Combine flour and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl.  Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour and place in the pan.  Brown the chicken on each side (should take about 4-5 minutes per side).  When the chicken is browned, squeeze the other lemon over the chicken and then pour wine over.  Cover each chicken breast with a slice of lemon.  Reduce the heat to medium and cover the dish.  Let the chicken cook through for another 8-10 minutes, or until the juices run clear when cut into.  That’s all there is to it!  I served it with herb and butter rice and sauteed zucchini and summer squash.
