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

    Found your recipe while looking what to do with chicken breast from a store roasted chicken
    Made your sauce adding mushrooms and cooking longer
    Made your breading using
    Grate your own cheese .
    The chicken is already cooked
    So put in skillet only long enough to brown on both sides
    And served with your sauce
    Wonderful
    Loved it. N

    I forgot to rate it- also, is there supposed to be Italian seasoning in the lemon butter sauce? The post mentions adding that but it’s not listed in the recipe ingredients and I didn’t add it there, but did add it to the egg mixture. ? Can you clarify where it goes?

    Very good! The sauce was a little lemony for us so next time I’ll just cut that down a bit but it was still very good. I ended up cooking the chicken in the air fryer at 375 for 20 min for 3 breast (cut in half lengthwise), flipping over halfway and spraying with coconut oil. Pretty good!

    I did an on-line search for lemon chicken, and found this recipe and website. I’ve made a number of versions of lemon chicken or chicken piccata and this is hands down the best one. Followed the recipe to the letter and wouldn’t change a thing. It’s a winner! Since then I’ve made the Baked Ziti, Chicken Pesto Roll-Ups and and an appetizer, the Sausage Queso Dip. They have all been superb! The combination of beautiful, simple recipes with amazing ingredients and taste is so appreciated. The website is also one of the best I’ve navigated.

    Let me just say…wow! I was looking for a light dinner for Thanksgiving Eve and came across your lemon chicken. We just finished dinner and my husband raved about it. We love lemon in our house and knew it would pair well with the garlic mashed potatoes that I made earlier today for Thanksgiving. I followed the recipe exactly but since we love lemon, I zested a whole lemon before I juiced it and added it to the lemon butter sauce. Amazing! And… I can’t believe how quickly this dish came together. The lemon sauce was to die for and I plan on making it again the day after Thanksgiving when we traditionally have seafood. I will broil shrimp and sea scallops, add the sauce and pair it with the leftover mashed potatoes. I have always considered myself to be a decent cook, but Natasha, you and your recipes have made me better! Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

      Hi Sher, I would highly recommend a good non-stick pan. Also, be sure to use enough oil and let the oil heat up. Lastly, make sure the crust is crisped and golden before turning and it will release more easilly.

    THIS IS SOOOOOO GOOD!

    This has become a weekly recipe for our household. My boyfriend and I love this, and his 6 year old son loves it too. We just omit the lemon butter sauce for his because he doesn’t care for sauce, but that means more sauce for us.

    It holds well in the fridge, so we usually make enough for leftovers.

    Tips – Don’t use Kraft grated parmesan, it’s not as good. Try using something one step higher. It does taste better with better quality parmesan cheese but if you’re on a budget anything other than Kraft works.

    Hi! I just wanted to share that I made this dish tonight for dinner. My husband and I LOVED it. When I try new recipes, I ask him to rate them 0-10 (10 is the best). We both gave it a 10! I did have to fudge the Italian seasoning by throwing in basil, oregano and rosemary in place of the Italian seasoning as I didn’t have any on hand. Yummy!

    Hi Natasha – I made this last night and it was so delicious! Will definitely make again. Quick question – do you add the sauce to the skillet with the cooked chicken and drippings? ( I used olive oil to brown the chicken.) I did this and it was great, but just wondering if you recommend draining the chicken and not combining the sauce with the oil in the skillet. Thanks for all your great recipes, I have loved every one that I have tried so far!

      Hi Laura, I’m not sure what you mean by draining the chicken. We love to combine the chicken with the sauce so it can absorb all that great flavor.

        OK – thank you for replying! That is what I did and it was delicious! (What I meant by draining is taking the chicken out of the skillet and putting it on paper towels to absorb some of the oil, putting the cooked chicken in a casserole dish then pouring the sauce over the chicken. This way the sauce is NOT combined with the oil in the skillet.)

    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!

      Hi Al, I have not tested this in an air fryer but the chicken does rehear well in an air fryer. If you test that I would love to know how you like this recipe!

    I find the oil in frying pan has to be really hot before putting anything coated,like bread crumbs or flour on it. Works great for me Great recipe.

      Hi Kate, yes it is best to preheat the oil and pan & get it to the desired temperature before cooking.

      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.

      Old Grandpa Al out. Thanks for listening!

    48% sodium???
    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 used no sodium broth, I didn’t salt anything and the Italian seasoning I used has no salt. The butter had salt and the parm also but I can live with that. Very good
