This is one of our "go-to" meals whenever we go camping. Make sure you back away from the stove when you add the lemon juice or you'll be attacked by the red pepper steam!

Ingredients

1/2 c
all-purpose flour
1 dash(es)
salt
1 dash(es)
pepper
2
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced horizontally into thin fillets
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
butter
1
clove garlic, minced or pressed through garlic press
1 tsp
crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp
grated lemon peel (optional)
1/4 c
lemon juice
1 Tbsp
dried or fresh chopped parsley

Step-By-Step

1Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a bag.

2Shake chicken in flour mixture to coat.

3Sauté chicken in olive oil and butter, about 8 minutes on each side, until cooked through and golden.

4Sprinkle with garlic, red pepper flakes, and lemon peel.
