"A simple, single-serving lunch or dinner. Chicken breasts sauteed with butter, fresh lemon juice and fresh ground black pepper. That's it - and that's enough for this tasty, tangy lemony peppery dish."

One thing I found was to make sure the chicken wasn't too thick, poke it with a fork a few times, and soak it in lemon juice. Then put it on the George Foreman grill with lemon pepper seasoning on it. Last thing, when it gets hot, melt a LITTLE butter on both sides. Not too lemony and not too buttery. Absolutely FAB!

This dish has definately been added to my favorites! My Husband RAVED over this one. He couldn't stop complimenting on how delish it was!! My chicken was on the thick side and I didn't pound it, I just cooked it longer. I also added more lemon juice as it cooked to keep the outsides from burning. Also when it was just about done I deglazed with a little white wine. WOW! Fantastic! Thanks!

This was good, nothing spectacular. I deglazed the pan with a about half a lemon and a quarter cup of chicken broth. Really in the end it tasted like chicken picatta. I did pound my chicken breat thin so it would cook faster though.
