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.

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
