This skillet lemon chicken is a snap to fix and cook, and tastes great with hot buttered noodles or rice. Feel free to use a dry white wine to replace the Marsala wine.

What You'll Need

  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves (skin removed)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Dash of salt
  • 4 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 4 green onions (sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons dry Marsala wine (or a dry Chardonnay)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Garnish: parsley (freshly chopped)

How to Make It

  1. Place chicken breast halves between sheets of plastic wrap; gently pound to thin to an even thickness. Combine flour, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika in a plastic food storage bag. Add chicken and coat well; shake excess flour mixture off.
  2. In large skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Sauté chicken breasts for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turn and sprinkle with a little salt. Place on platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
  1. Add mushrooms to the skillet with a little more butter, if needed. Sauté for 3 minutes, until browned and tender. Add green onions and sauté 1 minute longer. Add Marsala wine and lemon juice; simmer for 1 minute. Put chicken back in skillet; simmer for 1 minute longer.
  2. Arrange chicken on platter; pour sauce and mushrooms over the chicken and garnish with a little chopped parsley.

Serves 4.
