We love easy 30-minute chicken recipes for busy weeknights and some of our go-to’s include Chicken Marsala, classic Chicken Parmesan and of course this easy lemon garlic chicken. With these recipes in your arsenal, you can make restaurant-quality meals for a fraction of the price of eating out.

How to Make Lemon Chicken:

With just a few simple ingredients a few minutes of prep time, you can have yourself the most DELICIOUS crispy chicken breast in a buttery garlic lemon sauce!

  1. Cut chicken in half lengthwise and beat with a meat mallet to an even thickness.
  2. Prepare Egg Mixture – whisk together eggs, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  3. Prepare Parmesan Mixture – in a separate bowl, mix together the parmesan cheese and flour.
  4. Dredge the Chicken – coat in the egg mixture, then generously coat in parmesan mixture, shaking off excess.
  5. Cook Chicken. Add oil to a hot skillet then add breaded chicken and cook 4-5 minutes per side, until golden brown and the internal temperature reads 165˚F with an Instant Read Thermometer.

Cook’s Tip If the chicken crust begins to brown too quickly, reduce heat allowing the chicken to fully cook through.

Step-by-step collage instructions how to make lemon chicken with lemon butter sauce.

How to Make Lemon Butter Sauce:

This 5-minute EASY lemon butter sauce will become a staple in your home. The sauce is tangy from the fresh lemon and butter and the garlic just brings all the flavors together – SO GOOD!

For a quicker dinner, prepare the lemon sauce in a separate saucepan or skillet while the chicken is cooking. Then just pour the sauce over the chicken once it is cooked. Or, you can just cook the chicken, remove it from the skillet (cover to keep warm) and prepare the sauce in the same skillet, then add the chicken back.

  1. Saute the garlic and butter until fragrant.
  2. Whisk in the lemon juice, chicken broth, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Allow the sauce to cook over med heat for about 2 minutes.

NOTE: We love the fresh and tangy lemon flavor in this recipe. If you prefer a less lemony flavor, reduce the lemon juice.

Can I make this Ahead?

If you like to prep dinner in advance, slice the chicken and add it to the egg mixture, cover and refrigerate until you are ready for dinner. Allowing the chicken to marinate will result in a juicier and more tender chicken breast. Then, just continue with the remaining recipe instructions.

Can I make the Lemon Chicken without Parmesan Crust?

Yes! For a healthier option, completely omit the egg mixture and parmesan mixture. Slice the chicken breast and season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Then, continue with the preparation of the sauce.

Substituting for Chicken Thighs?

This lemon chicken will work with chicken breast, chicken thighs, and even chicken tenderloins. You will want to prepare the recipe according to the instructions, the only difference will be in the cooking time. The cook time will depend on the size of the thighs, you want the internal temperature to reach 165F on an instant-read thermometer.

Adding Vegetables to the Chicken in Skillet:

Yes, you may definitely add vegetables to complete the dish. Asparagus, green beans, and zucchini will all go great with the lemon sauce and compliment the chicken

    Is there any way to prepare this dish ahead of time so you don’t have to tend to it? I’m planning a dinner party and it would be nice to be able to pop it in the oven as opposed to tending to it over a skillet so you can be with guests as it bakes.

    Just made this for dinner tonight! I did make some changes. I’m Keto so I omitted the “breading” and used chicken thighs. I also didn’t happen to have any chicken broth and didn’t want to boil some up with my better than bouillon so I just added a teaspoon of the bouillon to the melted butter and garlic and then used heavy cream in place of the chicken broth to make it a creamier sauce. I served it with asparagus and topped everything off with fresh grated Parmesan. Delicious!!!

    Hello Natasha,

    I am still admittedly a novice, well, kinda, and if I lead with that and ask something stupid, i got wiggle room to save face… and with that admission, I’ll ask anyway. So, I’m gonna make this Lemon chicken and I was wondering, see, I bought, regrettably, a basic air fryer, well, because all the other kids have one, of course (reaching for humor, I’m 64 and rather sequestered, I have the “compromised” status so I’m not taking chances, 2 kitties and 3 grandkids, and 7 grandnieces and nephews I haven’t seen in a while so they, but I digress.

    How would I alter this recipe so I can use that air fryer?

    and so….

    being the typical guy, I didn’t wait for instructions, I put it in the air fryer, for 22 minutes at 350 degrees. now to make the sauce!

      Thank you both, Kate and Natasha. Now I’m wondering if my response to your response is like when someone at the movies, or the bar, or wherever calls your name and what do you know, there are other people with your name…. and your response was not directed at me at all..

      Oh well.. hey! it was great! I had 4 breasts and cut them in half, and made 2 breasts, 4 halves in the air fryer and the same on the stove top…

      A part that I left out of my introduction is that my brother lives nearby with 2 guys from the neighborhood that he and I grew up with, so lately, because there is only so much one guy can eat of the same thing, I look online and see recipes and determine, can I do it? And the answer is often the same, HELL YEAH. So in this case, I bought a flat of b/l, s/l chicken breast and get to make it, and by having my brother and HIS crew of 2, (Oh God, don’t tell them I referred to them that way…) so because of them, I can make and share.

      Well, back to the point, it was very good, I’m goin it make it again soon. I got more to say but I fear my lengthy writings will foster a posting concerning limits of lengthy posts.

      So y’all stay safe and stay well ’cause tomorrow needs us all.

    That is almost an entire day’s sodium for those of us who are salt restricted.
    Love the flavours, lemon and chicken are yummy, and I understand the flavour of salt but honestly, without modification, not an optionI am guessing salt, broth and Italian seasoning are the biggest culprits. We all need to do better.

        I’m not sure if it was the pan. I used stainless steel but did have plenty of oil so it wouldn’t stick. Maybe that’s the problem. My husband thought the flavor was very good even without all the Parmesan crust.

          So I made it again and used two different nonstick pan this time. Still didn’t work. Used plenty of oil too. I just don’t get it. It’s such a waste of time and ingredients when at the end, it’s a naked chicken breast. I do like the lemon sauce but I’ll have to find a different recipe to try. Maybe baking instead of frying next time.

            I hope you find this helpful Susan. Here’s what one of our readers said about baking it in an oven: “It worked in the oven! I used 1 cup of panko bread crumbs and 1 cup of parmesan cheese instead of the flour/parmesan mix, used cooking spray in my pan, and baked at 375 for 30-35 minutes. My family wanted it crispier, so next time I’ll broil for a few more minutes at the end.”

    This was delicious. I browned the chicken in a cast iron skillet (did not cook through). Since I had 6 pieces, I did two at a time and then finished cooking them in the oven so they’d all be ready at the same time. The sauce was so good that I also put it over broccoli. My husband really enjoyed it.

      Hi Inna, Here’s what one of our readers said “It worked in the oven! I used 1 cup of panko bread crumbs and 1 cup of parmesan cheese instead of the flour/parmesan mix, used cooking spray in my pan, and baked at 375 for 30-35 minutes. My family wanted it crispier, so next time I’ll broil for a few more minutes at the end.” I hope that helps.

      I used the same size of yours. My family told me that the chicken is very delicious w/o the sauce, but I prefer to get the flavor of the sauce inside the chicken.

    This was the most delicious chicken recipe! We loved it so much that I put chicken on the grocery list for the week following. I had a lot of the lemon butter sauce left over from the first time I made it so I saved it in the refrigerator to see if it would keep. Much to my delight The lemon butter sauce was as delicious as it was when I first made it. That really cut a lot of work out of remaking the recipe. when I first made it I had the same problem with the coating staying on the chicken once it was in the pan and cooking. So currently my chicken is in the refrigerator marinating in the egg mixture with the hope that the coding will stick to the chicken this time and not fall apart in the pan. It will be an A+ recipe if that works but delicious no matter what. Thank you so much!

    Hi Natasha from Sydney,
    I have cooked a few of your recipes and love them all – I love your style, but unfortunately, mm this was a miss for me. Way to much butter for my liking. Did like the Parmesan/Flour combo though without the usual breadcrumbs so will be using that technique on a couple of my other go to sauces.
    Looking forward to the next recipe of yours I try.

    I didn’t have the tool to beat the Chicken. I noticed parts of the chicken seem tougher than others, would beating the chicken have tenderized it? Loved the Recipe, can’t wait to make it again

    Reply

    • Natasha
      April 24, 2020

      Hi Leta, it could also be due to having varying thicknesses of chicken. A really large chicken breast can be very thick on one and very slim on the other and in that case, pounding would definitely help.

    Hi Natasha

    Here in the UK we call all purpose flour “self raising”. Is it really plain flour?
    Very confusing when your recipe requires all purpose flour.

    Reply

    • Natasha
      April 22, 2020

      Hi Carol, self-rising flour has leavening added to it to make it rise in baking. If you are just dredging in flour for sauteeing like in this recipe, I think it would work fine to use self-raising flour.

    I give this 4 stars instead of 5 because the sauce was a bit too much lemon flavor and did not thicken. Chicken was divine and I did soak the breasts in the refrigerator in the egg mixture for about an hour before cooking so the cheese mixture really stuck to it! came out crispy and delicious. I would probably skip the sauce next time.

    The Lemon Chicken recipe was the most wonderful meal for me to serve to my family of 3. My husband said it is the best chicken he has ever had. I used your hint to marinate the chicken with the eggs and seasonings in the fridge for a few hours.
    We had leftovers and I used some of the chicken sliced thin to use in quesadillas from your Philly Cheesesteak Quesadillas recipe.
    The Lemon Chicken was a nice switch from beef for quesadillas.

    I made this for the wife (52 yrs) on Valentine’s Day. We enjoyed it immensely. The only adjustment I made was in the breading where I merely sprinkled both sides of the meat with the cheese, pressing it into the meat, before doing the same with a mixture of flour and corn starch which I believe results in a crispier crust. It also wastes less breading. I use the same technique with several recipes.

    Hi Natasha!
    Can this be made gluten free and dairy free? I love ALL of your recipes and pretty much use one of them each day. My kids say…is this from your friend Natasha? they eat everything! I’ve recently started needing to be gluten free and dairy free so I’m trying to adapt all of your recipes! Thanks so much!

      Hi Tracy, this could easily be made with gluten-free flour and gluten-free bread crumbs. If the butter is problematic for you, I would probably try ghee instead which is lactose-free (not technically dairy-free since it’s milk fat).
