How to Make Chicken Breasts with Lemon

  4. Add chicken and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Turn the chicken and cook for 5 more minutes, or until cooked through.
  6. Carefully remove the oil from the skillet, leaving the chicken.

  9. Do not burn the garlic.

  12. Add the butter, and cook for 3 minutes longer.
