Lemon Garlic Chicken

I made this lemon garlic chicken randomly and it was delicious.


  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder, divided

  • 1 lemon, juiced


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place in melted butter. Cook chicken, flipping frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon garlic powder over chicken; cook for 2 minutes. Flip and sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon garlic powder on the second side; cook for 2 minutes.

  3. 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).
