Lemon Butter Chicken and the Weekly Menu

Chicken cutlets lightly breaded and seared to a golden brown served in a bright, lemony, butter sauce.  This delicious dinner is ready in only half an hour, making it perfect for a quick dinner before we had to run out to choir practice, last night.

We normally have choir on Wednesday nights but this week it was changed to last night.   On Sunday we are going to celebrate our sister-in-law, Rebecca's birthday with a bowling/pizza party.  Monday night I am taking a pottery class and choir practice returns to Wednesday.

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 25 Min


  • 4 chicken cutlets, about 6 oz. each
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place the flour, salt, and pepper into a plastic bag. Add the chicken cutlets and shake to coat.

  4. Add the lemon juice and zest to the pan and stir in the butter, one Tablespoon at a time, until melted and the sauce starts to thicken.
  5. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan and cook until warm and an internal temperature of 165 is reached.
