Sage and Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

This came out of our Sunday paper's Food section. It seemed ideal to me since I could adjust it to be a low sodium entree. I doubled the recipe for the 3 of us and made 4 halves.(extra sauce would be good next time too-it went fast!)

Super delicious!! It was fast and easy. I would recommend having it with a creamy rice dish or egg noddles, like Cookgirl suggested. Also, I only used about 1/2 the amount of flour, and it still turned out great!
