How to Make Lemon Chicken

Where's the fashion in chicken? Fine, fine. I know this is a non-packing, non-fashion, non-shoes, non-organization "How to", but I just cooked this, and everyone ALWAYS begs for the recipe, so I'm going to post it.  Besides, how can you stay on top of fashion and last in those fabulous pumps if you aren't sufficiently fed? 

My sister got this recipe a few years ago and we've been addicted ever since.

What you'll need: 
a large saucepan with a lid
olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan
1 tbs of butter
chicken breasts, thin (you can split them if you like)
lemon juice
egg to dip the chicken in
flour to bread the chicken in 
seasonings of your choice to add to the flour

How to:
1) Cover the bottom of the pan with olive oil and add the butter.  Heat the oil on medium to low heat.
2) Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the flour/seasonings mix. 
3) Place the chicken in the pan and cook on medium/low heat.  Turn when done on one side.
4) Remove chicken when cooked.  
5) Turn heat to low/simmer. 
6) Squeeze 3-4 lemons in the pan and stir the crumbs/oil into the lemon to make a sauce.  Add lemon juice if you like extra lemon (which we do).
7) Place cooked chicken back into the pan and cover with a lid for a few minutes.
8) Serve and enjoy! I like to make rice or pasta and a vegetable with it.

End result:
