this is a favorite at our house. a friend of mine made something similar and i changed it around to get this recipe. the buttermilk makes the chicken very juicy and tender. i learned that at a restaraunt i used to work for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. the night before cooking the chicken,put it in a zip lock baggie with the buttermilk.
  2. the next day rinse the chicken off and marinate in lemon juice with garlic and as much ground pepper as you like.
  3. leave for at least three hours.
  4. dredge the chicken through the whisked eggs and then add bread crumbs to cover both sides of chicken.
  5. heat the oil to hot but not smoking and add the chicken breasts.
  6. fry on each side for about 4-5 minutes.
  7. you can also cut the chicken into strips before you put in the buttermilk and have chicken lemone tenders.

Delicious! If you love lemon flavor, this a great recipe for you! We thought the chicken came out very moist and tender and the lemon taste was very pleasant. I did cook the chicken in less oil (approximately 2 Tbsp.) for health reasons, which added some extra cooking time, but still produced a crisp crust and delicious flavor. I will make this again.

This is a super recipe! The chicken was SO tender! A light lemon flavor. My 14 year old grandaughter was here for dinner and LOVED it!!! I will make this again soon.

This had a great flavor! I used thin sliced chicken cutlets instead of breasts because I don't like thick cuts of meat. The only problem I had was that the breadcrumb coating fell off some of the chicken. I just scooped it up with the spatula though and heaped it on (it was just me and my DH)! I deglazed the pan with a little wine, butter and garlic and had a yummy sauce, too. Thanks for the recipe!
