Lemon Chicken Scallopini with Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce

Ingredients
For The Chicken:
  1. 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts , halved horizontally to make 4
  2. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. Cracked pepper
  5. Juice of half a lemon
  6. 4 tablespoons flour (all purpose or tapioca)

For The Sauce:
  1. 1 tablespoon butter
  2. 2 teaspoons oil
  3. 1 medium-sized brown onion
  4. 2 tablespoons minced garlic (or 6-8 cloves garlic, minced)
  5. 1¼ cup chicken broth (stock)
  6. 2/3 cup light cooking cream*
  7. 1 teaspoon cornstarch (cornflour) mixed with 1 tablespoon of water
  8. 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice (adjust to your tastes)
  9. 2 teaspoons dried Italian mixed herbs**
  10. 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  11. Lemon slices or wedges , to serve
Instructions:
  • Season chicken with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Squeeze the lemon juice of half a lemon over each fillet, rubbing it into each fillet. (The next step is optional): Add the flour to a shallow bowl and dredge each fillet in the flour; shake off excess and set aside.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet or non stick pan over medium-high heat until butter has melted and pan is hot. Fry the chicken until golden on each side, cooked through and no longer pink (about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your chicken). Transfer onto a warm plate.
