Easy Pan-Fried Lemon Chicken

This Easy Pan-Fried Lemon Chicken recipe is a staple in my weekly food prep, and it’s Paleo and Whole30-friendly! As an urban apartment dweller, I don’t have a grill, so finding a way to cook chicken breasts that didn’t result in a dry chunk of protein became a priority.
