Ingredients

1
lemon, washed and trimmed
4
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, tenderized with a meat mallet
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
black pepper
1/4 tsp
paprika
1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1 can(s)
cream of broccoli soup, low-fat, low-sodium
1/4 c
1% milk
1/8 tsp
ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
TIP: in order to get more juice out of your lemon, roll it between your palms firmly, or against the counter top ... then pierce it several times w/ a knife or tines of a fork, and put it in the microwave for approx. 10 seconds. It will yield at least twice the amount of juice!
2
Cut 4 thin slices off the lemon and set them aside. Juice the remaining lemon (see note in #1), and set aside.
3
On a plate, mix together the flour, salt, first portion of the black pepper, and paprika.
4
Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to tenderize a little bit, then dredge them lightly in the flour, salt, pepper & paprika mixture.
5
In a medium-sized skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Set chicken aside. Pour off any excess oil.
6
To the pan, add the soup, milk, reserved lemon juice and last portion of black pepper. Heat to a slight boil. Return chicken to pan. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer, until chicken is no longer pink. Let it sit for a few minutes, while dishing up the side dishes. Top with lemon slice twists before serving.
