For the past few years, I have enjoyed having a lemon week in the Spring on my blog. This week is the week. I thought it would be perfect to share these recipes right before Mother’s Day. We are starting off the week today with a savory Lemon Breaded Chicken recipe. However, the rest of the week will be lemon recipes that are on the sweet side.

Today’s recipe is a basic breaded chicken with some lemon zest added to the breading. You would be surprised at how amazing a breaded chicken can taste with the addition of a little lemon zest!
