This is a simple, easy, rustic and bright lemon chicken recipe that is for those of us who really like all things buttery and lemony. This chicken recipe is hands-down the best chicken francese recipe without wine.
I like this recipe for so many reasons, it is easy, frugal, and we all enjoyed and liked it.
But hay, there is another story behind this recipe. This is not a story about chicken recipe, this is a story about overcoming my fears. Yep, overcoming butchering fears. My fears of hammering chicken breasts!
