Recipe Ingredients for Chicken with Lemon Sauce

1 lbs chicken breasts
5 teaspoons all-purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Chicken with Lemon Sauce

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine 4 tablespoons flour, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Dip chicken into eggs; coat with flour mixture.
