I can almost taste this luscious chicken now, just looking at this picture. I did change the original recipe somewhat from roll-ups to a sort of oven-fried chicken with lemon butter sauce. I hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients

1 stick
butter, softened
1/2 tsp
finely shredded lemon peel
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
6 large
boneless skinless chicken breasts
1
egg
1 Tbsp
water
1 c
all purpose flour
2/3 c
breadcrumbs

Step-By-Step

1In a medium bowl, cream the butter till light and fluffy. Add lemon peel, lemon juice, and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mixture.

2In a separate bowl, beat egg and water together. Place flour in another bowl, and breadcrumbs in a third bowl. Coat each chicken breast in flour, then dip in egg mixture. Coat with breadcrumbs.

3Heat the butter mixture, all but 1/4 cup, in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook on all sides 10 to 15 minutes, turning gently.

4Place the chicken and drippings in a 9x13-inch baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of baking, baste the chicken pieces with 1/4 cup of butter mixture. Serve hot with lemon butter sauce spooned over chicken.
