Lemon Garlic Chicken


Original recipe makes 3 servings

 2 tablespoons butter
 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
 2 tablespoons garlic powder
 1 lemon, juiced


Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Season chicken with salt and pepper; place in the melted butter. Cook chicken, flipping frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon garlic powder over chicken; flip and sprinkle 1 tablespoon garlic powder on second side. Cook each side for 2 minutes.

Pour lemon juice over each side of chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
