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!

How to Make Lemon Chicken Diablo

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a bag.
  2. Shake chicken in flour mixture to coat.
  3. Sauté chicken in olive oil and butter, about 8 minutes on each side, until cooked through and golden.
  4. Sprinkle with garlic, red pepper flakes, and lemon peel.
  5. Cook another 2 minutes, turning chicken over a couple of times.
  6. Add lemon juice to skillet, pouring over all pieces. (This is where you try not to breathe the steam!) The chicken will absorb the lemon juice.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
