LEMON CHICKEN -- oh so good!

I'm so sorry there is not a picture of this. We gobbled it right up. And then I went to the grocery store and bought two cans of pineapple juice at full price because I couldn't wait for juice to be on sale.

4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 8 small, cut into 1/2 inch thick strips
1 c flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup olive oil(start w/less butter and oil and add as needed)

1 cup chicken broth
1 cup pineapple juice
3 T. cornstarch
1 cup sugar
Juice from 4 lemons

Combine flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Shake chicken cutlets in flour mixture. In a large skillet, melt butter and olive oil together and cook chicken breasts slowly, until browned.

While chicken is cooking make the sauce by combining all ingredients in a medium sauce pan, heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Pour over cooked chicken in the skillet, making sure you get all the browned bits scraped into the sauce. Serve with white or brown rice.

Note: I left some of the chicken w/out the sauce for Phil because he says he doesn't like lemon chicken. He ate one of the plain ones and then ate one of the lemon ones and then he put the plain ones in the sauce and said, "Yours are better!"
