Mmmm...Lemon Chicken Piccata

I love just about anything with lemon in it...sweet or savory!

I found this recipe in the Spring 2011 edition of Food & Family by Kraft Foods. It's very easy to make, and fairly healthy. I highly recommend making it if you need a chicken pick-me-up!

You will need:
2-3 large lemons, divided
4 chicken breasts
1/4 cup (or a large dollop) Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo with Olive Oil
22 Ritz crackers, finally crushed (about a cup....I didn't have Ritz so I used the Multi-grain Club crackers...just as good and maybe a little healthier!)
2 T Olive Oil
2 t chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 T butter

~Cut 4 thin lemon slices from one lemon and put aside. Squeeze juice from remaining lemons.
~Coat chicken with mayo, then dredge in cracker crumbs.

~Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes. Turn chicken and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until chicken is golden brown on both sides and done (165-degrees). Transfer chicken to platter; sprinkle with parsley. Cover with foil to keep warm.

~Carefully wipe any crumbs from skillet with paper towel.
~Add lemon juice and chicken broth to skillet. Cook on medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until slightly reduced, stirring occasionally. Add butter and lemon slices. Cook and stir on low heat 3 to 4 minutes or until butter is melted and lemons are heated through.

~~Serve over chicken with a bed of angel hair pasta (or your favorite pasta)!! DELISH!!
