30 Minute Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 C lemon juice
  • 1 T lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 T canola oil
  • 2 T brown sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350.  If needed, pound the breasts with a meat mallet until thin. 
  2. Combine the flour, paprika and sea salt in a shallow dish. Coat each chicken breast in the mixture and toss until coated completely.
  3. Heat the oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Place each chicken breast in the oil and brown on both sides. Remove chicken breasts and keep warm on a plate.
  4. Pour the lemon juice in the pan to deglaze. Place chicken breasts in a casserole dish and cover with juice. Top with brown sugar and lemon zest.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165.
