Skillet Lemon Pepper Chicken with Gravy

The other evening I was going to make MARLBORO MAN's 2nd FAVORITE SANDWICH but I was busy sewing and really didn't want to quit to make supper.

You know....Who really needs to eat when there is sewing to be done??

Needless to say the rest of my family wouldn't agree so I had to fix something for them and this is what I came up with.
Once I got the messy part (pounding the chicken out flat) over and done with the rest of the meal was quick and easy so while it simmered on the stove top I went back to my sewing. :0)
I'll warn you ahead of time, I did not measure anything as I made this so I'm giving you guestimates but you really can't mess it up.

  Skillet Lemon Pepper Chicken with Gravy

                        Chicken breasts
                Lemon Pepper Seasoning
                1 stick margarine or butter
                      about 2 tbsp. flour

Place a chicken breast between 2 large pieces of waxed paper.
Pound chicken till fairly flat and even.
Sprinkle both sides with lemon pepper seasoning.
Place butter in skillet and let it melt.
When butter is melted and pan is hot then place chicken in pan.
Brown on both sides and then remove chicken to a plate.
Add flour to pan drippings and wisk around.
Let bubble and cook for a minute and then add about 1 1/2 cups water while stirring.
Place chicken back in pan and let simmer until done.
If your liquid starts cooking down then add a bit more water. In the end I believe I used about 4 cups of water all together and it made a nice gravy/sauce that we poured over the chicken.
Serve with rice or potatoes, a veggie and some fruit and you've got a quick and simple but tasty meal.
Oh, and if you have never tried the Marlboro Man Sandwich then DO!
It's takes a bit more time to make but it is soooo good!

I have had a similar dish and yours sounds even better, like a dish good enough for company! Somehow when chicken is pounded flat it just comes out melt-in-the-mouth tender!!!

It sounded tasty enough that I made it for supper tonight! Except, I didn't have lemon pepper seasoning and I used Lawry's seasoned salt instead. Lance loved it!

I've seen that seasoning before but I didn't know what to do with it. I love simple things like this. I'll pick up a bottle of it next time I go shopping. It's mighty hard to quit sewing, just to cook!!
