Easy, healthy light chicken dish with great lemon flavor. This came from a local gourmet grocer's newsletter.

Very good sauce. The recipe was super easy to prepare and done in a flash. Next time I do think I will make a few small adjustments to it and it will be a 5* recipe then. Needed a little more breading for 4 chicken breasts to be coated better. Needed more than 1 Tsp. of butter in the skillet with the cooking spray to cook the chicken. My chicken were already pre-pounded sliced thin cutlets so they only needed about 4 minutes or less per side. I think too, that I would remove the chicken breasts and keep warm, wipe out the skillet with paper towel and make the sauce in a clean skillet without all the breadcrumb leftovers for a much richer, smoother, finer sauce. Thanks for sharing! I have the basics and I will just run with it from here. Tweeky.
