Chicken with lemon sauce

This recipe is SO delicious! It tastes like something straight from a 5 star restaurant!

Ingredients:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved
5 teaspoons all-purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley (i didn't have this on hand)

Directions:
Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness.
In a shallow bowl, combine 4 tablespoons flour, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

In another bowl, beat the eggs.
Dip chicken into eggs & then coat with flour mixture.


In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter and oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.


In a small bowl, combine the remaining flour, salt and pepper; stir in broth until smooth.
Add apple juice to the skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits.
Stir broth mixture and add to the pan.
Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.


Stir in lemon juice & cook for 1 minute.
Add parsley and remaining butter;
cook and stir until butter is melted.
Serve over chicken.
