Texas Style Lemon Chicken

Chicken cooking
3 large chicken breasts, cut into thick strips
1/2 c. butter, divided
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. Italian seasoning (basil, thyme, oregano)
juice from 1 lemon

Melt 1/4 c. butter in skillet until bubbly. Mix all the seasonings together in a small bowl. Place chicken strips on a plate and season one side with 1/2 of the seasoning mixture. Place chicken seasoned side down in the skillet. Cook on medium heat about 5 minutes.

Dinner is ready, with a side of veggies
Squeeze half of lemon juice in skillet over chicken. Turn chicken over. Season other side with the remaining seasoning. Add the rest of the butter and lemon juice. Cover and cook another 5-7 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.

I served the chicken over rice, and drizzled quite a bit of the sauce over both. Definitely making this again.
