“A conglomeration of several recipes, taking the best from each to make one yummy dish. If you like chicken and love lemon and butter together, this is a real treat. I like to serve this with pasta and steamed broccoli.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a shallow bowl.
  2. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  3. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture and then breadcrumb mixture so that each is well coated.
  4. Melt butter with olive oil in frying pan on medium heat, and add coated chicken breasts, cooking about 8-10 minutes until nicely browned on each side and almost fully cooked. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
