  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • ¾ cup gluten-free flour
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pound chicken breasts with a mallet until all are an equal thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. (It may take more oil to cook the chicken.)

Coat each chicken breast with gluten-free flour, shaking off any excess. Working in batches, place half of the chicken pieces in skillet and cook 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a baking dish.

Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in skillet and cook remaining chicken. Place in baking dish.

Add butter and garlic to skillet and cook 30 seconds over medium-low heat.

Add lemon slices and lemon juice. Cook 2-3 minutes, flipping the lemons in the pan.

Pour lemon butter mixture over chicken.

Bake 15-20 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley if using.
