Zesty Lemon Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 c. fresh lemon juice (~10 lemons)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. chicken broth
1 c. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
2 t. paprika
1 t. black pepper

Marinate chicken in lemon juice overnight.

Mix flour with salt, pepper, and paprika. Dredge chicken in flour mixture.

Heat oil in a large skillet and fry chicken until browned, about 10 minutes.

Arrange chicken in a single layer baking dish and pat generously with brown sugar (I usually use more than the recipe calls for.) Mix chicken broth with 2 T. of the marinade and pour around chicken.

Place a thin lemon slice and some chopped parsley on each breast and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Delicious with Broccoli w/Blue Cheese and rice.
