Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour

Preparation Directions

  • POUND chicken breasts to 3/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle with salt.
