Sweet Lemon Crispyness...

Today is a busy day! It's my husbands birthday and we have some fun things planned. But I wanted to be sure and post a recipe. I'm so excited about some of the recipes I have coming up. I have several new creations that I think you're gonna love.

This one was a variation on a Cuisine at Home recipe from their "Cooking Light" book. It was a huge hit at our house. I served it with baked sweet potato fries and broccoli. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday "A"! I love you!

(Adapted from a Cuisine at Home Recipe)

4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ C. Italian style Panko bread crumbs
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon (or about ¼ C.)
¼ C.honey
3 t. hot sauce
2 t. olive oil

1. In a small bowl mix the lemon zest, juice, honey and hot sauce. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Season the chicken with salt & pepper then dredge in the Panko bread crumbs.
4. Add the chicken to the hot oil and sauté until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.
5. When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan.
6. Add the lemon glaze to the pan; reduce until syrupy, about 1-2 minutes.
7. Return the chicken to the pan, turning to coat in the sauce. Cook for 1 minute.
8. Remove from the pan and serve immediately.
