Lemon Chicken

I have been making this recipe for a couple years now and love it.  It is a recipe an old neighbor gave me!  

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast pounded thin
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
butter or margarine
1 cup chicken broth
2 small lemons

1. Mix four, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with it. Reserve remaining flour mixture. 

2. In skillet over medium heat, in 3 tablespoons hot butter or margarine, cook chicken until lightly browned on both sides.  Add more butter or margarine if necessary.  Once cooked, remove chicken pieces to plate.  

3. Reduce heat to low. Into drippings in skillet, stir reserved flour mixture chicken broth, and juice of half of lemon.  Stir to loosen brown bits.  Return chicken to skillet. Thinly slice remaining lemon; top chicken with lemon slices.  Cover and simmer 5 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender.  Garnish with parsley and serve.
