Lucky's Lemon Chicken

Difficulty Level:



  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 cup Panko or other bread crumbs
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • For Lemon Sauce:
    • 1 cup lemon curd
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbsp. water
    • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
    • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes


  • Spread flour out in an even layer in a shallow dish.
  • Pour buttermilk in a shallow bowl, and place it next to the dish with the flour.
  • Spread Panko or bread crumbs in an even layer in another shallow dish. Set the dish next to the buttermilk.
  • Pound the chicken breasts to a thickness of 1/4-inch.
  • Heat the oil in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Dip the chicken breasts first in the flour, shaking off the excess, then in the buttermilk, and finally, roll in the bread crumbs, before placing in the hot oil. Pan-fry the chicken on each side until cooked through, about 1-3 minutes per side, depending on how thick the chicken is.
  • Make the lemon sauce: Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan (be sure to mix the cornstarch with the water before adding it to the saucepan). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, until the sauce is reduced by half. Strain the sauce into a bowl, and serve with the lemon chicken.
