30 Minute Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken Recipe

30 Minute Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • juice of two large lemons
  • 1 T lemon zest
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 T canola oil
  • 2 T brown sugar

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Using a meat mallet (or ice cream scoop), pound the chicken breasts thin. Set aside.
  3. Combine the flour, paprika and sea salt in a cake or pie pan. Drop each chicken breast in the mixture and toss to coat completely.
  4. Heat the oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Drop each chicken breast in the oil and brown on both sides (should take only about four minutes). Remove chicken breasts and keep warm on a plate.
  5. Pour the lemon juice in the pan and stir to deglaze. Put chicken breasts in a casserole dish and pour juice on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar and lemon zest.
  6. Bake for thirty minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165.
