This is a quick chicken dish to prepare that has delicious lemon flavor. You can pound the chicken breasts very flat, or butterfly them. I usually butterfly the breast, which gets them to the thinness I want, and then I cut them down the middle into serving size. If you would like the sauce a little thicker, stir in a bit of arrowroot. Arrowroot is a thickener with no flavor and will not leave a floury starchy taste. This dish can also be served with rice or other types of pasta.
