Serve this zesty lemon chicken over your favorite pasta, or rice.
1. Place each chicken piece, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound lightly with a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap.
2. In a shallow dish, stir together flour and pepper. Lightly coat each piece of chicken with flour mixture.
3. In a large skillet, cook chicken in hot butter or margarine over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
4. For sauce, in a small bowl, stir together chicken broth, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Add to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in green onions. To serve, spoon the sauce over chicken. Makes 4 servings.
TIP: For best results when pounding chicken breasts, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet. Work from the center to the edge until the chicken is an even thickness.
