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

I can’t wait for you to give this simple chicken dinner recipe a try!

    Hi! This was delicious as I made it. However, I shredded the Parmesan, and it didn’t blend well with the flour. Please forgive this possibly stupid question, but is grated in the recipe referring more to the Kraft type texture? I thought grated and shredded were interchangeable – any clarification would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi Carrie! I like to grate parmesan fresh for recipes, so I use a block that I grate, but you can also purchase parmesan cheese in the fridge section that has already been grated. I hope that helps!

      Hi Carrie- try using a microplane to grate the cheese. It is a much finer texture than when you shred it. I think it will blend well into the flour

      Grated cheese is finer cut with the little grater holes. Shredded is the larger holes of the grater. Use the smaller holes.

    My family loves this but i have difficulty with it sticking to the pan because of the cheese. I thought maybe the heat it up too high (medium) or i need more flour? Any advice?

      Hi Ryan, It’s hard to say why the crust gets stuck without being there – it may be they type of pan, or being loft on too long, but be sure you fully preheat your pan before cooking on it. Depending on the pan type that may take several minutes. I hope you have a better outcome when you try this again!

      Hi Ashley, 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 fantastic! I added 4 cups of still partially frozen broccoli after the chicken breast was cooked. Poured over the lemon garlic butter sauce over everything. Turned the heat down to low and timed for 30 mins…amazing flavour! I cut back on the butter for the sauce, 5-6 tbsps, and the juice of one whole lemon. Broke off a chunk of some of my frozen parsley and added that in. For the parmesan cheese, I chopped/minced finely Parmesan petals from a container from Costco. I used 4 chicken breasts and just cut them into thinner pieces. The flavour was subtle garlic lemon. Wow! Love this recipe!

    Delicious. I used extra garlic and vege broth in the sauce, as well as generous olive oil to cook the chicken. Thyme instead of Italian seasoning and a mix of parm and Asiago. Also added zest of 1 lemon to the sauce. This paired really well with frozen yellow beans I blanched and then threw in with the sauce once it thickened up a bit. Super tasty. I haven’t cooked a chicken breast in 20yrs and this came out great!

    I made this tonight for dinner and followed the recipe. I ended up using Parm/Romano in the green container and the breading was perfect! I used olive oil and made sure it was pre-heated before adding my chicken. I then cooked and didn’t touch for 3 min. I did try to push one over a little and the breading started to come off. I think the trick for the breading to stay put is not to disturb for the first 3 min. I also served it on a bed of angel hair pasta. For that I used 1# box pasta, as that was draining I threw 2T. butter back into the hot pot, zest of the whole lemon and saved 1/2 c. of the pasta water. Put my noodles into the butter/zest and kept tossing and gradually adding the pasta water. Was fantastic! I will definitely make this again. Thank you for the recipe!

    Just way Too much butter
    even if I cut it to 3 TBsp it iust floats on top so I cant imagine 8. I do 1 whole cup of chicken broth each time perfect amount of sauce to drip onto rice. At the end I add cut little slices of lemon on top and add sprinkle of more salt. Perfect!!!!!

    Good recipe. I reduced the butter to 2 tablespoons for lower fat/dietary reasons and added a bit more lemon and stock, then thickened the sauce with rice flour.

    I also eliminated all added salt for dietary reasons.

    I doubled the spices in the egg wash and used grapeseed oil.

    The chicken came out very crispy which paired nicely with the sauce. I’ll make this again.

    Made this tonight for my very finicky grandkids. When an 11 year old asks, “Nonna, can I have the recipe please?”, you know it’s a winner.

    I followed it exactly and would not change a thing! Served with buttered egg noodles.

    Good recipe however I omitted making the sauce in a saucepan. Instead I removed the chicken from the skillet after browning and made the sauce on the skillet using the drippings

    Made this tonight; thank you it was delicious. I had to make the sauce twice as I tried to thicken it with cornflour and it separated, went lumpy, any suggestions please? Also can you make the sauce no using so much butter.

      Hi Jan! I’m glad you loved the recipe. Corn starch can work to thicken sauces but it’s not quite the same as corn flour.
      I have not tried to make this with less butter, but you can experiment with it some more if you’d like. Sorry I can’t be more help.

        Hi, made this several times now. Always a huge hit. I’m a little confused with figuring out the calorie count. I doubled the recepie which give approximately 10 chicken cutlets. Please let me know how to figure the amount of each serving and calories per serving. Thank you

          Hi Daniel. There really isn’t a way to do that easily. The nutrition facts are computer generated and the recipe is estimated to make 4 servings (cutlets). The nutrition facts listed are per each serving. I suppose if you doubled every ingredient you can take the nutrition facts and multiply it by 8. That would be the total amount of fat, carbs, protein, etc.. for the recipe doubled. Once you have that number, you can divide it by 10 (since you got 10 cutlets) and that should give you a close enough estimate. I hope that helps.

    Even when adding flour, the sauce was too thin and just a tad too lemony. The chicken was wonderful, great crust. I would use thin sliced next time, and I would possibly cut down the butter, maybe add some cream and thicken with corn starch. My family loved it regardless.

    I made this for the first time last night and we loved it. I personally would have liked the sauce a little thicker so I will add some corn starch next time. My husband had the idea to mix the leftover egg mixture and cheese mixture and made little fritters in the pan after we cooked the chicken. They were delicious also!

    So glad I found this recipe. My family raved about the flavor. I took some advice from others and added a few things like fresh lemon zest and a 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch to the sauce. I also used the same pan fo make the sauce to take advantage of the little bit of the fond. My daughter asked that I make this for her birthday and everyone thought it tasted like it was from a restaurant! Chef’s kiss!

    Made this last night and it was a hit between the boyfriend and I. The lemon sauce was delicious and the egg/cheese crust smelt wonderful.. but the entire cheese crust stuck to my pan, so for the most part the chicken was pretty plain. Any suggestions??
    I’ll definitely be making it again.. I’ll probably add a bit of flour to thicken the sauce, and add capers! I also made the sauce separately, but if I could get the chicken to cooperate I’d probably make the sauce in the same dish for added flavor!

      Hi Kendra, I’m so glad you both loved it! It’s hard to say why the crust stick without being there – it may be they type of pan, or being loft on too long, but be sure you fully preheat your pan before cooking on it. Depending on the pan type that may take several minutes. I hope you have a better outcome when you try this again!

        This same thing happened to me – I used a cast iron skillet and everything stuck, but then when I used a non-stick pan, it was totally fine. I think the cast iron is the issue.

    Excellent chicken! All I had was cake flour, and grated fresh Parmesan combined for an incredibly light, crisp, delicate crust. I used a cup of stock and more lemon juice, and added dried parsley (fresh would have been better but I was out) and sea salt to brighten the taste. I could have used half or a quarter of the butter and it would have been delicious. I wouldn’t call this a 30-minute dinner but it was so good, I’ll reserve it for special occasions!

    Very tasty and easy. The second time I made it, I put the sauce in a blender and added a raw egg yolk which emulsified it nicely. It still hasn’t separated after two days (I made a double portion with two egg yolks as the sauce is also great with asparagus).

    I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. It was absolutely delicous. After heating up my stainless steel skillet, I lowered the heat to keep the cheese from browning too fast. Consequently the chicken was a beautiful golden color and done perfedtly. I added the butter to the skillet and some flour before adding the lemon juice and chicken broth as I wanted more sauce. It was just perfect. Now in my favorites. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi, did you use regular lemons or Meyer lemons? Meyer lemons are milder. Also, I suggest not cooking the sauce for too long which can change the flavor and punch of the lemon. Lastly, make sure to use the same amount of lemon juice that is called for which adds vibrant lemony flavor.

      Hi Leslie! I didn’t measure them to be exact, this can change depending on the chicken breast size. Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise and then beat them with a meat mallet until even in thickness, probably 1/4-1/2 inch.

    This was Amazing! I had to add juice from 2 key limes because I didn’t have enough lemon juice, I also added in addition, lemon pepper seasoning. Yum it tasted like the lemon chicken from our favorite Chinese restaurant Red Dragon

    When you say grated parm for this, do you use the shaker cheese or does this work with fresh grated parm? I usually use the fresh stuff but concerned it would be melty with the ratio to flour you use.

    Delicious and looked great! I did season my pounded chicken with lemon pepper seasoning before doing the egg wash. I also left the chicken in the egg mixture for 30 minutes before coating with the flour/Parmesan. My teenagers loved it. I served it with quinoa and brown rice and a zucchini sauté.Everyone said it was restaurant quality!

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.”

    Terrific recipe. Delicious. I have a few suggestions:
    1. Your ingredients call for 1 Tbsp EVOO to sautee, but in the instructions you say use enough to coat bottom of pan.
    2. I really like to simplify where possible. Use only one pan, not two. Cook chicken first; set aside; cook “sauce” in same pan; add back chicken at the end, being sure to turn once to coat.
    3. For the amount of chicken in your recipe, there was not enough coating. You call for 1 and1/2 bs of chicken; I used only a lb. and ran out of coating.
    4. I do not understand suggestion about “marinating” in the egg mixture. Egg is not a marinade, nothing penetrates, so a wasted step. Marinades usually need some acid (vinegar, lemon juice) to penetrate the protein.
    5. Instead of lemon slices to garnish, I added them to the cooking sauce before adding back the cooked chicken
