Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken

This was a completely uninspired meal that turned out well.  I'm not saying it's earth shattering, but it's definitely tasty when you need to dress up some chicken breast in an effortless way.  It was just the ticket for a lazy wednesday night.

Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken
Adapted from Fake Ginger

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
juice of two large lemons
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350F. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.
Combine the flour, paprika and sea salt in a shallow pan. Drop each chicken breast in the mixture and toss to coat completely.
Drop each chicken breast in the hot oil and brown on both sides (should take only about four minutes). Remove chicken breasts and keep warm on a plate.
Pour the lemon juice in the pan and stir to deglaze. Put chicken breasts in a baking dish and pour juice on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar and lemon zest.
Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes, or until cooked through.
